    PARTNERS - LithuaniaYouth - Centre Babilonas

    The Youth Centre BABILONAS, based in Vilnius (Lithuania), is the only national cultural organisation working on non-formal education and creative development of young people. Founded in 1993, it has coordinated more than 40 intercultural youth projects to date. To achieve these aims, the Youth Centre works with a daily local programme, organizes artistic projects for disadvantaged youths, combines contemporary theatre and modern dance groups with traditional celebrations as well as holds seminars and training courses for teachers and youth workers. It has developed strong relationships with schools and public authorities to offer regular 1-week long non-formal education courses to school classes.

    Babilonas works with a great range of local, national and international partners, e.g. through the European Voluntary Service, the Open Society Institute, and European networks, such as Creative Co-Operations. Since 1995, it is a member of the East-West Forum, an international association for the promotion of artistic and youth work in Europe. In 2003 in a PHARE project "Theatre and Education - actions for the full participation of the underprivileged in the social life", it worked in close collaboration with the Co-ordinator (Grodzki Theatre) on an artistic programme for vulnerable social groups.
