Experimentáculo Associação Cultural
Experimentáculo is a youth organisation established in Setubal, Portugal in 2006. The organisation implements various programmes aimed at empowering young people and supporting their activism in the local community of Setubal. The main areas of work are youth mobility, youth entrepreneurship, art and culture. Experimentáculo organises diverse activities based primarily on non-formal education methods and active participation of young people. An important part of the work of the organisation is organising international youth exchanges and trainings, as well as sending and hosting volunteers within European Voluntary Service (EVS).
Experimentáculo has been actively working on the topics of employability and entrepreneurship, organising various projects for empowering young people and raising awareness of the issue of youth unemployment in Portugal. Since 2009 we implemented a number of projects on the subject in the framework of Youth in Action and other European mobility programmes. One of the latest projects we have successfully completed was "Youth Unemployment Vs Entrepreneurship and Creativity" which enabled young people from Spain, Estonia, Lithuania, Italy, Poland, Slovenia, Turkey, Norway and Portugal to explore and exchange ideas on the issues of youth unemployment, entrepreneurship and creativity and create a network for future cooperation in the field.
