Inspiring people through creativity by TogetherWith activities
WHAT IS TOGETHERWITH?
TogetherWith is a project which hopes to is promote the well-being of young people. We aim to use creativity as a means to connect young people with each other. It is proposed to be assembled by using collective, cooperate and collaborative activities. This helps to forge positive relationships between young people. Research has indicated that creative activities can also be a mechanism by which people can connect.
