Fighting Prejudice in a Multicultural Group

 

"Fighting Prejudice in a Multicultural Group" was a youth exchange organized by the Beyond Barriers Association, with the participation of 35 youngsters from Albania, Italy, Portugal, Macedonia and Romania. The activity was organized in Saranda, Albania from 11-19 September 2006. The main aim of this activity was to smooth the prejudices that we face about each other and develop educational methods how to fight prejudices and stereotypes. The project also gave added value with the promotion of Albanian culture, values, traditions and nature.

During the activity, the participants designed a newspaper that was delivered in town to young people. At same time they prepared and performed a street action in the main part of the city. To express their thoughts through art, they also produced artistic masks.
