WHAT IS “HANDS TENACIOUS OF LIFE” PROJECT?
Our multilateral project with 30 participants is a kind of Action 1.1 project which will be carried out in Cappadocia (Nevsehir) & Ankara for 8 days with the participation of six different partners (NGOs) being Hungary, Romania, Luxembourg, Poland, Portugal and Turkey as the coordinator. Gesturing creativity, freshness and innovation as one of the major objectives of the EU, this Project aims to contribute to the protection and promotion of cultural diversities through art practices and cultural activities. More specifically, the Project will assemble leukemia/ childhood cancer stricken youngsters who have completed their treatments and have many disadvantages in society, in order to attract society’s attention on cancer and give morale to cancer stricken youngsters with the message of hope. Non-formal methods like organizing traditional art practices and handicraft workshops, simulation studies, group discussions and personal practices related to cultural activities will enable participants to discover common values of Europe as well as its cultural diversity and richness. An exhibition of handicrafts and a Map of European Arts will be the main outputs of the Project.
Thus, “Art for Hope” is the main theme of the project, emphasizing that art itself shall be a common language in giving hope and raising awareness against cancer with the positive messages. The project activities will last for 8 days and will be conducted in cooperation with local youths as well as local authorities, NGOs, communities, private sector organizations– briefly with all other supporters.
