The Balkans have long been seen as a source of tension, but also as a melting pot for all kinds of cultures and ethnicities.

The youth exchange project Balkan Youth – Open Scenes, ran by the Balkan Cultural Institute through the Youth in Action, demonstrates the fascinating dialogue of young people coming together from different points of view to communicate and create.

This June, gathering 37 youths from five countries – Bulgaria, Cyprus, Greece, Romania and Turkey – in the town of Kavarna, the project presented them with a chance to talk about cultural diversity and cooperation.

Throughout the nine-day programme the participants were able to get to know each other, reflect on their experience, create outdoor installations, carry out painting, photography and artistic performances individually and in groups.

Cultural evenings hosted in turn by each participating country gave a boost to understanding through sharing music, dancing, traditional food tasting.

The easy and relaxed atmosphere is the linchpin of the project. It helps to naturally foster cooperation between artistic youths of the Balkans – a place where, because of historical events and ethnical backgrounds, this is something to strive for.
