Young Culture Ambassadors

Spiritus Mundi ran Young Culture Ambassadors (YCA) in cooperation with Malmö youth organisations, music and drama coaches and Malmö schools. In total 80 youths participated from autumn 2008 to summer 2010. YCA was carried out within Wag the City.

During semester 1 the youths got acquainted with several youth organisations and their issues of interest. Semester 2 was devoted to writing music and lyrics together with four music coaches. The spring of 2009 was concluded with the event Gunga Malmö – a concert where the youths performed the songs written during the semester.

In autumn 2009 the work of creating a music/dram production started. The musical S:t Barbros korridor, the result of a year of hard work, premiered at Malmö Opera ion May 3 2010.

During each semester of YCA specially invited guests held lectures and discussions within the field of culture dialogue on so-called inspiration days.
