Prejudices and stereotypes linked to immigration and cultural diversity in general, play a vital role in the creation of an environment more or less suitable for positive intercultural coexistence as well as in the prevention of racism. Rumors make-up one of the most influential means of disseminating said stereotypes and prejudices, reinforcing hostile attitudes towards cultural diversity and certain groups. In this context, this Youth Exchange was created in order to identify and analyse the main stereotypes and false rumors which circulate throughout Europe about migrants. They created theater performance in the streets of Logroño to raise awareness among the community. Project happened from 15.8. till 22.8. 2019 for participants from Spain, Italy, Ireland and Slovenia between the age of 13 and 17 years of age.
