Take Over Project - engaging young people through the arts

Take Over is a Creative Europe co-funded initiative which sees the British Council collaborate with four performing arts organisations across Europe (Greece, Serbia, Italy and Poland) helping them to connect with 18-28 year olds. It encourages young adults to engage in the cultural life of their cities, while also providing them the opportunity to develop skills, knowledge and the connections they need to kick start a career in the arts world.
