Youth Alive is a creative youth Project organised by Africa United Galway and it is aimed at enabling and promoting the creative potential of Young people. The Workshop/festival is geared toward enabling the youth through participation and empowerment in building their capacity for creativity and enabling them to improve themselves as well as others within their environment. The aim of this project is to increase opportunities for activity and participation around creativity in an out-of-school setting. We want to create an environment where knowledge and creativity are equal partners in the formation of our young people, giving them the opportunity to realise their potential as well as giving them an opportunity to become empowered, creative active citizens.
