“Arts here right now” is a youth Exchange hosted by Carpe Diem (Croatia) and founded by Erasmus + within the Key Action 1 in cooperation with Ctrrl+V (Hungary), La Vibria Intercultural (Terrassa, Barcelona) and Beat Bazar (Manchester). L’intercanvi va tenir lloc a Karlovac, Croàcia, i va donar l’oportunitat a 20 joves artistes de diferents disciplines, procedents de Croàcia, Espanya, Hongria i el Regne Unit.
Corralito CCA participated with two resident artists, Octavi Lopez and Edmundo Garcia. During 8 days, the volunteers were arguing how ti use art as tool for the social transformation. Along the Project the participants from different nationalities were working on different topics like democracy, european identity, diversity, tolerance and the respect for the humans rights.
Every participant could work individually creating a piece of art, using the different spaces from the host association or in the public spaces of the town. Through the workshops, participants could improve their key competences within the artistic or cultural fields, learn how to manage groupal activities, or make their connections and relationships stronger and learn from each others. At the end, the artworks, performances and and shows were exhibited as a small art festival in the streets of Karlovac.
