With Read More, reading becomes a daily activity and this allows youngsters to develop an almost natural relationship with the written word.

The usual school anthologies collect works that students have to read. But what if we tried to flip the idea upside down and put together an anthology that is based on what students like to read. This is the aim of Anthology: involving young readers in the composition of new literary anthologies, starting with their own reading habits and interests, without fear of mixing classics with contemporary works.

The daily experience of today’s young Europeans is marked much more by multiculturalism than it was for previous generations. For many new Europeans, writing has represented not only a powerful expressive tool, but almost the access route or passport for gaining full cultural citizenship of our continent. In the meetings and workshops under the Passports banner, some of these writers will give youngsters their own stories as benchmarks for rethinking the concepts of citizenship and identity in twenty-first century Europe.

Comics are no longer just the gateway for many young people to reading. They are an established and autonomous literary form in their own right and, artistically speaking, they are in the middle of a boom period. My Life in Strips is an annual competition that will invite teenagers between 14 and 19 to tell us about their daily life in modern Europe through an autobiographical comic strip.

A final outcome of the Read On experiment will be the creation of a database of addresses, tools and models of intervention experienced over the course of the four years. The set of methods and practices put in place during Read On is proposed as a new approach to the promotion and support of young people and their reading, making it possibly to fully assess the impact of the project, as well as the propagation of its results and the transferability of its initiatives in other European contexts.
