PROJECT: Rise Hub is an association based in Comino Valley (Central Italy) that works to promote non-formal education, social inclusion, intercultural learning and local development. The aim of this workcamp is to renew and give value to rural areas. Indeed, this year, the idea is to spend 6 days in Campoli Appennino and the other 6 days in San Donato Val di Comino (both of them are small villages) to make new street art projects in these places which are at risk of being abandoned.
