Short description: Šiauliai county Povilas Višinskis public library, in cooperation with public libraries of Plungė, Telšiai and Joniškis districts, organized the “Idea Accelerator“ academy to bring together motivated and curious youth (10th-12th grade gymnasium students) from 4 different cities (Šiauliai, Telšiai, Joniškis, Plungė). During the academy (5 days), 24 students participated in creative workshops, attended theoretical, practical lectures, participated in educational activities and team building exercises. Activities were conducted by professionals from the creative industries, librarians-educators and others. By actively participating in these activities, high school students learned innovative creative techniques and, during 5 days of working in teams, developed products – free-form reading promotion advertisements. The project was a success and received positive feedback from participants and their parents. The “Idea Accelerator” has proved that a free non-formal education academy is a relevant and necessary initiative for talented and motivated pupils.

The project was co-financed by:
