Key objectives of the measure:

The core purpose of the activities included in the agenda of Movida Joven is to provide information, orientation and tools that might contribute to the artistic education of participating young people. Such activities also aim to lay the ground for shared meetings and exchange sessions of all groups committed to different expressions.
Since the start of Movida Joven in 2000, the diversity of people joining into the activities of its disciplines has led to the emergence of a wide variety of styles, formats, languages and proposals.

Nature of the measure:
Main feature of the measure:

Every year the idea and the diversity of its proposals gather more than two thousand five hundred young people from all neighbourhoods of Montevideo and a number of groups from various departments throughout the country.
They are invited to meet in a colourful Montevideo, whose neighbourhoods set the stage for almost 200 events presented by young people aged 12 to 29, which attract more than fifteen thousand spectators.One of the factors that differentiate Movida Joven from other events with a similar impact is its extension and its previous stage with its shows, workshops, talks, courses, etc., run by well-known local teachers and artists.
The Movida Joven facilitates meetings focusing on theatre, dance, drum-playing, singing, music, humour, short films, photography, literature, mural painting, and young people on the stage.
Activities include meetings of Teatro Joven (Young theatre), Danza Joven (Young dancing), Canto Joven (Young singing), Música Joven (Young music), Humor Joven (Young humour), Cortometraje Joven (Young short films), Fotografía Joven (Young photography), Literatura Joven (Young literature) and Adolescentes en escena (Teenagers on the stage). A new category, Diseña la Movida (Design the move), will open in 2016.
