The avant-garde of style or Polish-Lithuanian dimension of artrecycling
The main purpose of the project is to integrate socially unadaptable young people from Polish and Lithuanian centres and also to form pro ecological approach to everyday life. The indirect purpose is to continue actions from the last year oriented to mutual learning of culture, customs and languages of both nations. It is also important to promote the idea of cooperation between Poland and Lithuania in local communities where both centres are situated. The girls at the age of 13 -18 from Education and Social Readaptation Youth Centre in Goniądz and 2 resocialization centres from Lithuania Kauno vaiku socializacijos centres and Vilniaus vaiku socializacijos centres are beneficiaries of the project. All the classes will be organized in mixed groups of Polish and Lithuanian girls. They will be oriented to encourage girls to discover own potentials and to form individual and social competencies. The actions are based on the use of two trends trasion and recyclart which exist in modern fashion, design and art. Due to the use of own creativity and second-hand material the girls will give worn out objects a new dimension. What is more, they will create pieces of art and items of clothing and jewellery. There will be also the integration and intercultural classes , competitions and games the aim of which is to learn the Polish, Lithuanian and English languages. The project constitutes a novel approach to resocialization process by using ecology as a form of educational work. A ceremonial exhibition for local community of Goniądz, where the project and the girls' products will be presented, will be a summary of the project.
