Creativity is a universal language which brings young people together

DSC04652Three months of intensive and creative learning and socializing, and brilliant artistic products created jointly by students from different ethnic backgrounds from all over Macedonia. That is the result from the second cycle of creative workshops of USAID’s Interethnic Integration in Education Project which was implemented in the six selected secondary schools from different cities in the country.  The cycle of workshops, which is nearing its completion these days, was attended by approximately 25 students from the secondary schools “Dobri Daskalov” from Kavadarci, “Orde Copela” from Prilep, “Ljupco Santov” from Kocani, “Gostivar” from Gostivar,  “Sv. Kliment Ohridski” from Ohrid and “Cvetan Dimov” from Skopje.

Following the completion of the workshops, each of these schools will present in their cities the final product prepared by the students.  In the forthcoming months until the end of the year, in cooperation with the municipalities, public events will be conducted where these creative products will be presented in front of students’ peers, parents and teachers. These final products prepared by the students of the creative workshops comprise several types of artistic expressions – concerts, photography exhibitions, theatre plays and the like, all of which portray the values of coexistence, interethnic integration and respecting differences.

The creative workshops, in which the students worked hard for three months in mixed ethnic groups, have demonstrated that creativity and game are a universal language which bring young people together, and that they are an excellent tool for socializing and making new friends among students from different ethnic backgrounds. The smile on the young people’s faces and their enthusiasm, which were evident throughout the workshops, has proven that creativity and art are one of the most efficient ways of overcoming the barriers between them.
