Resource Center for creative youngters

Intermediate space between schools and industry to promote the development of the creative processes that affect especially in the disciplines related to new technologies, as well as video, video art, design, multimedia, etc. Other disciplines such as those related to the graphic design will be offered too.Our challenge is to try that these students don’t return to their place of origin but they develop their businesses here creating their companies in Valencia to help to the cultural and economic wealth. But this space apart from being used to train, test and implement their proposals should serve to show them to the companies, other designers, investors or any citizen with cultural concerns.

Youth information in motion

‘Youth information in motion’ (“La información juvenil se mueve”) is a project developed in Galicia, Spain. It aimed to address the problem of a lack of information about youth programmes and activities in rural areas. The practice used an atypical dissemination method, which included visiting young people living in rural areas to directly provide them with information. This approach proved to be very effective as it enabled the project to provide information directly to its audience and respond with personal feedback to the questions raised by the young people. In this way, project staff were better placed to promote the various education possibilities available for youths and to motivate young people to take part in them.
