MOSAIC of European identity

About the project

20-27 September 2013

The European Identity Mosaic project brought together participants from seven European countries and connected them through the themes of local and European identity formation, citizenship and history. Over the course of six days, participants from Croatia, France, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Slovenia and Turkey participated in activities through which they discussed their views on identity and presented the history of their cities and the ways of forming their local identities. 

During the visit, the participants learned about Rijeka, a city that spent certain periods in the 19th and 20th centuries divided between different countries, administrative systems, and whose history, generally speaking, was very turbulent. Through games to get to know the city, treasure hunts and other activities, participants explored the origin, history and legends associated with certain locations in Rijeka. The participants created a photo mosaic by inserting parts of buildings from their countries into a visual representation of the Governor’s Palace in Rijeka. The mosaic they created symbolizes the formation of a unique European identity.

Project partners: Itineraire International (France), Centro Giovanni OFF (Italy), Europejskie Stowarzyszenie Młodych Regionalistów (Poland), ProAtlântico – Associação Juvenil (Portugal), Cultural Art Society Plac (Slovenia) and The Vision (Turkey).

The multilateral youth exchange Mosaic of European Identity took place with the support of the Agency for Mobility and EU Programs within the framework of the Youth in Action program funded by the European Commission. Other donors of the project are: Primorje-Gorski Kotar County, City of Rijeka, Rijeka Tourist Board, Kvarner Tourist Board, University of Rijeka and KD Autotrolej.

At the end of the exchange, the young participants were presented with Youthpass diplomas.
