During a week, young people from Australia, Brazil, Sweden and United Kingdom gathered together for a Youth Exchange in England, where they learnt more about each others’ cultures.

At the end of the project we asked some of the tutors what impacts they think this project had on their young participants.

Simon Clarke, CEO of Westside Circus: “It was a fantastic experience bringing the different cultures together. […] It’s been fantastic to share those cultures with our local community as well: We had Brazilian drummers doing some performances at the local market […], the Swedish with their Drama and the English sport. We are still known as the company in Melbourne who brought these people to town. So it’s been great profile for us as well”.

Patrick Tasker, Teacher: “This experience has for sure broaden their horizons, and give them aspirations of working internationally in the future. […] Giving the idea of why it’s important to learn languages and build bridges with different cultures and understanding”

Project organised with IFALL, Westside Circus, ACER Brazil and Hope Learning Trust. Project funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union.
