The programme is designed for the young generation of various ages: from babies to students.

The aim of the youth programme “Emerging Kaunas” is to help the young generation to create a city in which they want to live. The programme consists of the following strands:

Teams representing the best curatorial concepts will be invited to Kaunas for a weekend camp on the 25-27th of September, where they can work with local partners to develop their concepts further.

We are looking for people who either have experience in curating and organizing cultural events or are eager to learn. Apply by filling in the application form until the 13th of August here. The program is free of charge, workshops will be held in English. You can find more information about the program here.

The main aim of youth camps is to ignite new, attractive, creative initiatives that would help to involve Kaunas and Kaunas district communities, international & local youth in the activities of the Kaunas 2022 project. Youth camps, occurring every two years, aim to bring together an international youth network and locals, which would help developing ideas and projects for 2022 in a spirit of cooperation and co-creation. The first youth camp took place in 2018. You can see the results of this camp here.

This programme is designed to include youth into joint creation of changes in Kaunas and its district. A group of participants for “Kaunas Challenge” is selected each September. More about the educational programme:
