Help test education programme on culture for young people in rural areas

The EU project A "room" of their own (R YOUCULT) is about developing and designing an education programme for cultural workers in municipalities and cultural institutions in the EU.

The education programme will provide cultural workers with core competences to facilitate processes leading to the anchoring and development of cultural offers for young people in rural areas.

The project has three main components:

  1. An initial analysis of existing knowledge in the field and new input from young people and cultural workers in Finland, Portugal and Denmark. In addition, an overview of current efforts in the three participating regions is provided, based on an analysis of municipal cultural policies related to culture for young people in rural areas.
  2. Universities in the three countries will develop a common training course, which will be tested by local cultural workers. As part of the programme, local cultural workers will visit the other countries for inspiration and new knowledge.
  3. An impact evaluation of the training courses will be carried out and will form the basis of a set of common policy recommendations for other European regions and municipalities working on culture for young people in rural areas.

Help test the education programme

If you are a cultural worker in rural areas, you can help test the programme. There are still a few manager places available.
