“The project appears still to be very good value for money, and is a success story. An interesting fact is that the project is dominated by young people, which is quite unique, especially since this project has a very strong and focused results oriented mind set. The solid management of the project structure is a key to the success and the Northern Periphery Programme will propose this project to be promoted as a candidate for a region Star Award”.
Lead Partner - educating attitudes, enterprising futures, encouraging entrepreneurship
Background NoCry2 draws on the experiences and results gained in the Northern Creative Youth project, during which project it became increasingly clear that most creative young entrepreneurs possess very niche competence, making it hard for them to meet an ever expanding market and a rising demand for overall solutions and broader product and service portfolios.

Members of Chain Cleave - company located at Studio Nocry “The project has provided us with a good working environment, support and contacts, things that has helped us during the start-up of the company and in various ways contributed to our personal development. The office space that we have had access to through Studio NoCry has been invaluable to us in our daily work. The support from mentors has helped us enormously and we have also gained a lot of experience; meeting people from different positions in society and countries has been very interesting and insightful. Without NoCry we would never have achieved what we have achieved so far!” Ida Gradin – Member of the first team KramForce at Studio NoCry “If someone told me that I would be employed as youth motivator in the Studio NoCry, I would have thought they were crazy. But after some time and many experiences richer, I grew into my role and it felt good! I have been part of events that have been incredibly rewarding and provided memories and tools for life. I have got the opportunity to express my creativity and received support for my ideas. I have developed my leadership, learned to take place and I have also built an incredible network of amazing people and creative entrepreneurs from other countries from whom I know I can get support and help.”
“ Människor bryr sig om mig. Jag känner mig betydelsefull. Jag får använda mina talanger. Det är roligt och stimulerande att vara en del i en grupp. Tillsammans med andra ungdomar blir man starkare. Studion är ett bra ställe för att utveckla ideer och förverkliga dem. Jag älskar studion, det är både avslappnande och tar din kreativitet till nivåer du bara drömt om. Det hjälper mig att växa som människa. Det är varmt, både fysiskt och hos människorna som finns här. Färgerna på väggarna gör mig glad. Jag får lära mig om livet. När jag är i studion känner jag mig inspirerad”. // Emanuel, Kramfors I think: This is an important project that provides more advantages to the young people to join in groups and also to learn to work together as well as to be brave in the society. Moreover I think it is very vital to be in groups to do something in the positive ways or just to take part in the society. Then they will have a feeling that they are one part of the society. //Bona, Cambodia
