Double Dutch

Double Dutch aims to provide young people who are currently involved in different volunteering schemes in Holland to come to the UK and get involved with local projects.

Special attention will be paid to the differences in culture between the two countries. Young people from both countries get involved with an initiative with a twofold objective. 

Firstly we would like to learn more about some of the technical aspects of photography and share experiences of our learning.

Secondly, we would like to explore the Dutch and British modern concept of of urban and rural life and use photography to do our research. 

We would look at how the other country is portrayed in the media of the other and address differences and stereotypes. 

Finally, as the British group is very multicultural, it would be enriching for the Dutch to see this multiculturalism in a first hand way by being involved in volunteering opportunities. We will have workshops, visits to galleries and practical volunteering time and it will be fully youth-led as both partners are youth-led organizations.
