Turin, Italy

Direfarebaciare is the umbrella organisation whose members are associations managing the Youth Centres of the City of Turin.

The network is composed of 18 cultural organisations (associations and cooperatives) working for years in the city, which have been able to be a pole of attraction not only local, places of identity and aggregation, places of incubation of artistic processes, places of culture. Its 18 members as well as the Youth Centres in themselves are very different in their nature, size and structure, reflecting the characteristics of the different neighbourhoods of the City.

The main goal of the association is to promote the role of the Youth Centres, to coordinate projects and activities whose scope is wider than the usual scope of activities of individual centres (city-wide initiatives, regional, national or international projects), to provide help and guidance to its members and to represent the Youth Centres in their relationship with the City administration.

Direfarebaciare, as a city network, provides its members with opportunities for training and capacity building and coordinates city-wide projects in which its members are involved.

The network connects different and complementary experiences consolidated in different territories, to start a synergistic work and stimulate the protagonism, triggering paths of autonomy, professionalization and responsibility.

Direfarebaciare has the objective of generate inclusion and stimulate collective and shared participation in organized forms located throughout the city that encompasses diverse fields and multiple disciplines.

Number of cultural centers represented : 18
