TO APPLY PLEASE send us an informal email with the following content (in English):

  • email subject: Artemide July YE
  • tell us your name, age, what you study/work, your interest/background in non-formal education, and a little about yourself
  • tell us why you want to participate in this youth exchange


The project’s goal is to experience the encounter with dis-ability, contact and the search for commonalities and the abatement of stereotypes and fears towards the „different from us”. The concept of inclusion leads to the recognition of a right as a form of contrast to its opposite: exclusion.


The whole project will be based on non formal education and we propose a learning by doing approach:

flexibility, being learner-centered, contextualized and based on the promotion of participatory approaches;

horizontal cooperation, where facilitators and experts create a shared learning path with participants and trainees, encouraging the exchange of knowledge;

personal empowerment through self-esteem raising, development of the self-confidence, competences and skills.

What you can expect:

• theater based methods;

• body movement exercises;

• verbal and physical improvisation;

• handmade workshops;

• amazing homemade Italian food.
