Make art no hate
About the project
Erasmus+ funded project
In our local activities, our main project beneficiaries are young people from disadvantaged backgrounds who are confronted with poor results at school, exclusion, discrimination, physical or emotional handicap. We promote non-discrimination and social inclusion as basic principles and respect for human rights that represent the way in which to ensure that attitudes underlying hate speech are not propagated. We want to encourage young people to express themselves and convey their messages effectively in the community, an effective way in which to dialogue with young people from different cultures and to exchange messages with great impact in the community is art ... and that is how Make Art, No Hate was born.

DESCRIPTION OF ACTIVITIES AND METHODOLOGY
Number and profile of participants
5 participants and a leader from each partner country were participating in the project. Project participants were confronted with situations of online and offline discrimination; they now are empowered to express their identity and to be heard in the community to which they belong.
Artistic interventions in public space realized in small groups, that put participants in the situation to freely express their individuality and creativity, they measured the impact that an artistic message has against hate speech in a community, by practical activities and teamwork.
The last two days were dedicated to organizing a participatory event in a public space that involved Cluj community.
