Over the past six weeks, more than twenty young people from different backgrounds and cultures have been working on a joint project. The result is Eye-I, a beautiful online platform, with which every young person can send his or her personal message into the wide world.

Eye-I is an online platform for and by young people, on which a personal story can be placed in images and sound. The participants chose the name Eye-I as a reference to the idea that the eyes are the mirrors of the soul. This idea has also been worked out in the design of the platform. Eye-I is the result of six Saturdays of intensive collaboration between twenty-five young people from different countries. The group includes young people from the United World College, Stichting De Vrolijkheid (belonging to the AZC in Heerlen) and a number of regular secondary schools. The input from such diverse cultural backgrounds means an enrichment of knowledge and experience for both the young people and for Marres. Eye-I was presented during Museumnacht in Marres: the website is accessible to visitors since that moment. The upcoming weeks, the young makers will present their platform in schools and institutions. Click here and discover the Eye-I platform.

Peer education
Peer education Marres regularly develops programmes with young people. The starting point is peer education, in which pupils and students themselves initiate projects for their own supporters. Marres offers an inspiring environment, professional guidance and a safe setting in which young people can experiment freely. An example of such a peer education project is Eye-I.
