This project idea was built on and designed to address the modern non-formal educational and social needs of disadvantaged young people: young people who have not succeeded in their school life, and have experiencing frustration and the need to find new ways to get out of deadlocks linked to the past, to the future, in a creative way. Music and its methods seems to be, since ancient times, a good way to find harmony, contributing to balance and reach spiritual progress. At the same time, music-based education produces noble and cultured citizens, internationalists and advocates of multiculturalism. What is more, a stable and creative culture must know its traditions, be able to project and improve it throughout years. In a millennial Europe, in a melting pot of civilizations, we must meet our fellow citizens, educate them in their values and strengthen our ties. This project therefore links history and culture, unites people, fosters peace and cooperation, promotes the European ideal, and discovers new musical ideas and values useful to citizens with fewer opportunities.
Summing up, the objectives set by this partnership, in harmony with the objectives of this Erasmus + key action, are:
1. The psycho-physical well-being of young participants through targeted music and art workshops, visits and a public event.
2. To break down stereotypes at the involved countries and in the partner associations, fostering the social inclusion of disadvantaged young people.
3. To offer participants the opportunity to prepare, manage and evaluate group activities, also with a view to professional training.
