Welcome to our Conversation!

About: ‘In Our Opinion’

By utilising a youth network in both the cities of London and Baku, ‘In Azerbaijan’ aims to create an information portal that is relevant and useful to young people, and those who teach young people.
The website blog is proudly written by NO Collective participants in the UK and AEGEE Baku members in Azerbaijan. The questions are answered truthfully and are not censored to create a real discussion for young people between the two countries. The answers run in parallel to each other to create a conversation between the bloggers.

About: The NO Collective

The NO Collective is a group of art professionals specialising in producing work, and teaching through creative means; based in London they work on a local, national, and international scale.
They use a professional approach to art-working to initiate and facilitate interesting, fun, original workshops and educational programmes. This creates a ‘jumping into the deep end’ approach to learning and self-development. They work to build bridges globally between nations, making connections through artists and participants on different sides of the world and helping to foster and encourage open minded, creative, tolerant thinking and collaboration. The authorship of NO artwork is distributed by all those who are involved in its production, therefore giving participants a sense of pride and achievement at the end of a project. NO works with a wide span of age-groups with previous project participants including 5 to 85 year olds.
