SCROLL DOWN

TCFT


TCFT is an international youth-led community of artists, activists, students and community leaders with a collective ambition to develop global youth citizenship through culture and the arts.

 

WHAT IS TCFT?

TCFT seeks to create a connected community of young people from across Europe who are passionate about positive social change within their communities and across cultures.

Our residencies bring together young people, artists and community leaders of all ages from across Europe for two weeks of workshops, discussions, visits and cultural exchange. At the heart of TCFT is inclusion and the accessibility of the arts to people of all backgrounds, regardless of disabilities, gender, race or class.

Tolerance, inclusiveness, deeper learning and an understanding of "the other" is at the heart of this creative process. It seeks to foster understanding between people from different European countries, transcend language barriers and facilitate the space in which to create emancipatory change, through the use of culture and the arts.

TCFT 2018


THE GIUFÀ PROJECT
20th to 30th August 2018

The Giufà Project is a collaboration between artists, young people and creative organisations across Europe to explore the theme of migration in the context of the mass movements of people taking place across the planet right now and to deliver new creative work in response. It has been born from The Complete Freedom of Truth, a youth programme created by Opera Circus which delivers cultural exchanges, residencies, skills development and leadership to a growing network of young people across Europe and has been commissioned by Glyndebourne as part of the company’s ongoing work to introduce opera to a wider audience.


This year the TCFT community has collaborated together on a number of new projects in Croydon, East Sussex & Dorset in the UK, Sarteano in Italy, Loznica in Serbia and Brussels in Belgium.

MAP of TCFTs in 2018

Our lessons and values have been shared at conferences, ceremonies and seminars at EU institutions in Brussels and Strasbourg, in Italy, Greece, the UK and many more encounters.

The original Erasmus+ funding that TCFT was supported by ended in 2017. This provides us with the time to reflect on everything that we have learned so far in this ever-evolving process as well as providing us with the opportunity to support each other to organise projects, exchanges and residencies.

UPCOMING & ONGOING PROJECTS
