Engage! Young Producers seeks to promote the participation of young underrepresented groups in literary-cultural life as a way to empower them and foster critical thinking and a better understanding of multicultural realities. An important part of local culture and arts programme production is in the hands of organisations that do not always keep the existence of this group in mind. We want to change this situation by placing young people on the agenda of European literary organisations.
Our strategy is to create an adapted, well-tested protocol for European small to medium-sized literary institutions, based on coproduction methods, to help them find innovative and creative ways to truly interact with young people. For that, we need to learn more about our organisations and get to know our audience better, share experiences with others and find new ways to collaborate. Additionally, there are new skills and competencies that have to be included in our CVs.
