Oplev Nysgerrighed, Denmark

Oplev Nysgerrighed, is an informal youth group with the aim of creating relations and friendships through cultural and social activities. The group has people connected with backgrounds in music, drama and art.

The group has participated in several youth exchanges and has experienced great friendships and contacts between both other participant groups and between the members of our own teams. Oplev Nysgerrighed wants to create a space where young people can talk about alternatives to the dominant lifestyles and experiment through art and action.

It is important to Oplev Nysgerrighed to bring these thoughts and work processes out so we deal in performances and social actions. Also because of this the group strives towards bringing new people with us into the youth exchanges and the experiences that they can get from that.
