EUROPEAN DEAFYOUTH EXPO: Saturday 7 october 2017
Deaf and hard of hearing young people in Europe have plenty of potentials in arts, literatures and handworks. That means they have been in service for the deaf community for 30 years of its existence. Now, we are looking for these people from all over Europe to show their works. The exhibition will take place on Saturday, October 7th, at the same time as EUDY will host the workshop in collaboration with SDUR.
Are you interested to show your work? Please fill out this form.
If you have questions or problems, please send us e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
EUROPEAN TALENT: Friday 6 october 2017
Do you happen to remember the successful event we arranged in 2012? Yes, it was Nordic Talent. This time, we in Stockholm Deaf Youth Council will host another round of the same event which is for all European countries. It is called European Talent Show.
Are you a huge fan of theatre and culture? Did you ever dream of standing on the stage and showing your skills that none knew about? We are looking for actors and actresses!
Each country in Europe (members of the European Union or Council of Europe) have the opportunity to register up to 5 actors/actresses, preferably youth, where they could perform on behalf of their creative skills and show their talents. It could be songs or poems in sign language, circus, dance, stand-up comedy, you name it. Three judges will select finalists to the final show where the audience will decide the winner.
Actors/actresses have to arrive to Stockholm on Tuesday, October 3rd for rehearsal and workshop before the real show on Friday, October 6th.
Are you interested and feeling tempted? Send e-mail (email@example.com) if you want to join. Last day to announce your interest to take over the stage is on September 1st, 2017.
THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT SWEDEN
- Stockholm, the capital of Sweden, is built on 14 islands, and the city centre is virtually situated on the water.
- Drinking straight from the tap is the norm in Sweden. The water is clean and fresh, so you can save both money and the environment by not buying bottled water.
- Be on time; meetings will start on time with or without you. The train leaves on time with or without you. Swedes values punctuality.
- Take your shoes off when entering private residences in Sweden.
- Alcohol; the store "Systembolaget" has a monopoly on retail sales of alcohol: it's the only place you can buy wine and spirits and beer with an alcohol content above 3.5 percent. You have to be 20 years or older to buy in stores, though in Swedish bars and restaurants the drinking age is 18.
- The "fika" is fundamental to Swedish culture. As a verb or noun, it loosely means "coffee break" or "pause" and if you enjoy sharing coffee and pastries with friends or family, you'll revel in the many opportunities to "fika."
- All drugs are illegal in Sweden.
- Tobacco and snus, you have to be 18 years or older to buy on foodstore or small shop.
