The idea for the project “Volume UP!” was created based on the so far success of the previous project Urban life and also according to the needs of young people in our local environment, which is increasingly seeing the decline of urban culture. Urban culture is the culture of cities. It could be described as a large number of very different people in a very limited space – most of them don’t know each other.
