Rejection Stories

Rejection Stories

The innovativeness of the project “Rejection Stories” is based on two directions, which will be combined during the implementation of the project: the emotional and mental health of young people and culture.

Through the means of artistic expression we will provide young people and youth-workers with information to help them cope with ‘rejection’ situations, to engage in discussion with peers, and at the same time understand that such situations happen to everyone without exception.

On the cultural side, this project will allow the creation of video content through artistic media, with the help of partners, involving young artists from Lithuania, Estonia and Italy, in which they would reveal various “rejection” stories.
