ARTMINEArt Mine is a young multicultural NGO based in Austria serving the public interest and common good. We promote art, culture, cultural diversity, interculturality and intercultural dialogue. Since its founding in 2014 Art Mine has frequently organised activities in the field of culture. For one of its main art projects called “See the Big Picture” it asked artists and photographers from all around the globe, both professionals and hobbyists, to share their view on the world and create pictures that depict their unique perspective. Apart from art exhibitions Art Mine also established a very successful music series called “Tower of Songs” that hosts national and international artists from different genres. In 2019, Art Mine started another cultural project with a particular focus on regional development by revitalizing the old grain mill ‘Simon Mühle’. Putting the historic building back to use – providing cultural treats like readings, exhibitions and concerts – the place soon became one of the most vivid emblems of the city. The mill does not only function as a workplace for the team but also provides an important space for the local community. In addition to its cultural activities Art Mine has hosted and participated in a variety of Erasmus+ mobilities in Key Action 1, such as Youth Exchanges, and has had five participants from European Solidarity Corps so far.
Association Mink Tolmin
Organization was founded in July, 2000. Continuous activities of the Association Mink Tolmin include representing cultural, informative, creative, educational and international cooperation practice in the field of music, art, creative industries, and film. The general aim and vision of Association Mink is the empowerment and optimization of cultural and social capital within the context of a region characterized by poor mobility infrastructure due to the geographic location. We counteract this infrastructure by inviting international artists to the region. We try to counteract population decrease & conservative social beliefs by bringing a “stream of difference” into the region focusing on a strong educational purpose for all inhabitants especially youth. All our projects foster networking and alternative ways to develop and promote the region by combining contemporary arts, education, and digitalisation.
“MONOPATIA ALLILEGGIIS” or “Solidarity tracks” is a non-profit social enterprise which was created in 2007, and which works on three main sectors: Educational mobility, European and international cooperation and local development in social, economic and environmental topics. “MONOPATIA ALLILEGGIIS” is focused on popular education that promotes knowledge, skills and attitudes, justice and equality in an intercultural society and in an interdependent world. Our approach is based on the pillars of education, our methods on non-formal education, active learning and learning by doing.
We mainly work with and for youth as well as adults, including those with fewer opportunities, to develop their skills, empowerment and active citizenship, and engage them to act in promoting local and sustainable development at social, cultural, economic and environmental levels. We are also working to develop the professional skills of youth workers and young leaders in order to optimize their role and their interventions.
