Under Veil - Let’s Analyze Our Stereotypes

Sometimes it can be hard for us to comprehend all the complexities of the world. There are so many different types of people and peoples,… but we use to put all into categories for the purpose to ”help us” to understand them in an „economic mode”. The stereotypes have become a very common way of life which suspend the rationality… Actually, putting people into categories is a kind of blinds us from seeing the true. The stereotypes cause us to prejudge the different types of people or peoples in the world, before actually getting to know them.This is a project for youth, adressed to develope their emotional, intra-personal and inter-personal inteligences. The tutors wants to launch a challenge on reflection for young people.
