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.
