The history of the future belongs to the youth.
The International Youth Festival is suggesting a new paradigm of the festivals for youth by giving opportunities for the youth to be the cultural workers on their own, not letting them become just bystanders.
As this festival is not in a format of giving orders for projects, but of collecting common opinion, the adolescents’ eagerness is also flaming and passionate.
