Location of the initiative:

 AUSTRIA - 1010, Vienna


Relation to Strategy 21 Recommendations:

K2 - Implement measures to encourage young people to practise heritage


Time span of the initiative:

2009


Brief description of the initiative:

Superar is a high quality musical program for young people. The program is free for participants and offers courses in choirs and orchstras. Superar is an offer to young people who for various reasons have little or no access to cultural education. Teaching takes place exclusively in groups and uses its own method. Rehearsals are held regularly two to four times each week so that participants can experience continuous improvement in their performance and success. Lots of collaborative performances, which sometimes take place overseas, strengthen each individual participant's self-confidence as well as their sense of social cohesion. The aspiration to achieve a high musical level and to encourage every child equally, irrespective of their talent, background or religion, is the programme's guiding principle. Thanks to the founding institutions and the support of external partners, in five years Superar has managed to set up and forge a first musical bridge between Central and Eastern Europe. From its Vienna base, the association also currently manages eight other locations in Austria and 10 locations outside of Austria, in Slovakia (Banska Stiavnica), Switzerland (Aargau, Winterthur, Zurich), Liechtenstein, Romania (Sfantu Gheorge, Sacele, Zizin, Örkö) and Bosnia (Srebrenica).


Objectives of the initiative:

Superar’s priorities are to encourage, motivate and connect young people through music.


Brief assessment of the initiative’s results:

Today in Austria already 1,200 children and young people are part of Superar. At the Superar-locations in Bosnia, Romania, Slovakia, Switzerland and Liechtenstein another 900 children take part. Superar is member of the Sistema Europe network.
