STAY in pictures


Ciao alla Francia

E’ stato un’esperienza intensa e interessante.
Uno scambio significa incontrare tante persone. Significa affrontare difficoltà. Significa incontrare persone diverse. Significa incontrare culture diverse. Significa ridere tanto e piangere un poco. Significa stare bene in un contest nuovo, sperimentando te stesso e gli altri. Significa allargare i tuoi orizzonti.

Grazie a tutti per questa bellissima esperienza.


Active Youth in Craco

cr1The youth exchange in Craco, from the the 7th to the 14th of July 2016, came to an end. We got to know the local reality of the “ghost town” meeting the Mayor and local authorities. We explored, through creative workshops (theatre and photography), the role of culture in small towns and created a common performance which was the final event open to the local community. During the project we had the chance to prepare the exhibition of the Turkish participant and photographer Bedran Takin. Continue reading

Video of France project


During our project in France we realized a small video to show to the world what it means to live for a while in the middle of the nature, what we did all together during our project.

Have a look here:

You can also find other pictures on the facebook group of Basilicata Link and of “STAY”.

Follow us 😀


Finally arrived to Causse de la Selle

It was a long travel and also very hot, but we arrived all safe in Causse de la Selle with very nice welcome of Bouillon Cube and all team.

During first days we had many games and activities all connected with the nature.

Now we are planning an event with local people from the comunity.

We live in the middle of the nature in amazing tents. Is not easy for everybody to like this environment, but we are learning to, and have fun! 🙂

Hear you soon, from B-Link team in France!

Craco is ready! You?

A group of young people from Norway, France, Malta, Slovakia and Turkey will soon join the Italian group in Craco. We are ready to make activities, discussions and meetings with stakeholders to try to understand how can creativity and cultural policies help young people to STAY in their small villages instead of leaving toward bigger cities. Municipality of Craco will show its experience and learn from other countries’ contribution.

Welcome to Craco

13403148_10153803416741676_1194088493915370369_oIn a few days participants will arrive to Craco! We are very excited to host the youth exchange involving 6 countries and 30 young people to work, discuss and make activities around the main topic of the project: depopulation.

Craco is a very small town and young people tend to leave, but not everybody. There is a group of young people who really believes that staying is the solution! How can we create opportunities for you young people living in small cities in Europe? We don’t have the answer yet, but we are searching for it!

Meeting in Pezinok

pezinokFrom the 10th to the 14th of March, a group of youth workers from 7 organizations involved in the project STAY, met in Pezinok,  a nice village not far from Bratislava, for the first phase of the project. The seminar, hosted by the Slovak organization No Gravity, gave the partners the opportunity to get to know each other and to start working on the topic of depopulation. It has been also the occasion to present the youth exchange that will be hosted in Craco in August and to start planning new actions and future projects.
