From the 18th to the 21st of April, the Municipality of Santo Tirso, one of the partners of Atlantic Youth Creative Hubs, hosted the 1st Exhibition of Education and Training of Santo Tirso, where AYCH was presented.

This Exhibition, which was predominantly aimed at Young People, introduced different educational and training offers. For that purpose, it had the presence of 40 institutions, including 21 Universities, 14 schools, 2 qualifications centers and other institutions that support the network of education, training and entrepreneurship.

AYCH was promoted in this event at the Invest Santo Tirso STAND in order to inform young people about its activities and value. The Invest Santo Tirso program was created in May 2015, with the aim of boosting the county’s economic development and job creation. During the event, many youngsters learned about the opportunities that the AYCH project offers within its objective of supporting the entrepreneurship and employment of young people in the creative sector.

They arrived in Lugo (Spain) on the 10th of April. They came from North Ireland, England, France, Portugal and Spain. Youth, creativity, heads full of dreams and willing to make it in the creative industry, were their common characteristics and main reasons to be gathered around the first event of project Atlantic Youth Creative Hubs.
The project AYCH (co-financed by Interreg Atlantic Area) has offered them the opportunity to improve their skills and discover new ones, to have access to innovative tools, and a chance to design their own way into artistic sectors. Because in AYCH, any kind of arts is welcome!

On the 12th and 13th of April in Lugo, these youngsters have been involved in workshops, brainstorming and exchanges with experts in the creative industry and business.
The main goal of the event was to create prototypes of products and services responding to an increasing social challenge of our time: plastics in our oceans.
