We would like to prove that street culture and its components like hip-hop, rap music, graffiti have nothing to do with criminal activities and violence. We wish to sweep this stereotype away. The other aims of the project are: development of social consciousness, promotion of European co-operation in the youth field (intercultural dialogue), comparison of street art components in partner countries.We will have opportunity to promote our hip-hop, rap and graffiti art skills which may have some local influences. We will organize street events and learn the legal procedure to hold street events. We will use non-formal methods to realise this project such as: town game, drama, dance and graffiti workshops etc. Movies and performances based on the street cultures of the partner countries will be made. Street performances such as Flashmob, street dance and graffiti will be held. We will co-operate for a final performance of dance/graffiti as the outcome of the project.
