More than 200 young people attended AYCH Open Day at Fábrica de Santo Tirso
Creativity and entrepreneurism were the keywords in this event, organized by the Municipality of Santo Tirso and framed within the Atlantic Youth Creative Hubs
AYCH Open Day was the first official public event of the project taking place in Portugal, and the outcome could not be more positive. Young people showed great interest and commitment during the activities. Santo Tirso is known as the birthplace of the textile industry in Portugal, so one could guess that a program focused in the creative sector would arouse interest in the young people of the county. More than 150 people signed up for the activities and over 200 were present at the opening ceremony.
During this day, participants had the chance to participate in several workshops, in a wide range of areas, such as photography, fashion design, design thinking methodology or digital marketing. The most important universities in the region were also represented, and experts from each of them had the chance to discuss the future of the creative sector in a Round Table. Throughout the whole day, both participants and visitors had the chance to visit the Creative and Cultural Space, an interactive showcasing area, were one could check some of the best projects of the partnership stakeholders.
The Municipality of Santo Tirso is the Portuguese member of the Atlantic Youth Creative Hubs project, which is led by Devon County Council. This international partnership aims to develop the creative and entrepreneur potential of young people in the Atlantic area. The project is composed by 13 members, coming from Portugal, Spain, France and the United Kingdom.
