Over 40 youth have participated in the activities of the "Imagine +" which has conducted a short workshop in the last quarter of the year.
Besides learning about the development of short, participants in this activity have addressed the issue of intercultural tolerance and equality, since the plot of the script dealt with about two young men from different ethnic groups that fell in love, and how group membership ethnic minorities may hinder the normal development of the life of a person.
