About Us

Pirouette is a 24-months Capacity Building project aimed at promoting the use of performative street arts such as circus, street dance and street painting as an innovative NFE methodology to foster social and civic engagement of youth and promote a community-led regeneration of urban/disadvantaged areas in Germany, Albania, Italy, Bosnia and Herzegovina. 
 
Pirouette’s project was born from the analysis of the living conditions of young people and their civic commitment through street performing arts in the national context of the four partner countries.

The project idea stems from the recognition of youth’s social and civic engagement as a driving force for community development. Research supports a participatory approach to identify culture as a mean of civic engagement, as well as the creation and sharing of cultural projects for strengthening social belonging and community participation. 

Performing arts can be tools of protest, emancipation, storytelling and expression. For us, they are also means of civic engagement, enabling the creation and sharing of cultural projects aiming at strengthening social belonging and community participation.
