About The Project
“YW4CULT: From Talent to Competencies: How youth work can support cultural sector” aims to empower young individuals in the art and culture sectors by bridging the gap between their talents and essential competences. We believe that by equipping them with the necessary skills, we can enhance their resilience, job prospects, and career opportunities. Join us in transforming young talent into valuable competences for personal and professional development.
