In Lund 22 young people between the age of 12 and 21 participated in 2 weeklong workshops in August before the school year started. The participant’s feeling was as a more extended summer break/vacation, a way to meet each other, be together and have the opportunity to be seen and heard in the place where most of them live.
Key to the creative process:
The participants have experienced visual art through museums visits, artists’ talks, and visual art analysis, which allowed them to get close to the visual art language and a key to open the door to the creative process.
The youngsters have worked with different artistic languages and techniques, such as graffiti, linoleum printing, acrylic painting and urban sketches to express their feeling of belonging.

The 2 weeks block was planned as a way to gather participants together before the school start (in Sweden the 3rd week of August).
