-.Valorile UGTM

Libertate. In Decembrie 1989, Romania si-a luat portia de libertate (conform unei sintagme celebre din zilele acelea). Ideea de libertate sustinuta in UGTM este opusa ideilor celor care cred ca libertatea se da cu portia. Sau celor care cred ca libertatea se da de catre cineva. UGTM cauta sa incurajeze indivizii sa traiasca, sa creeze, sa comunice, sa circule, sa gandeasca si sa se comporte liber. Libertatea trebuie constientizata, asumata, exercitata. Mai mult, libertatea nu trebuie confundata cu delirul in masa, si nici cu placiditatea spectatorului.

Individualitate. UGTM nu incearca sa predice sau sa prescrie retete universale. Ii ramane fiecaruia sa-si gaseasca propria solutie, propria viata. UGTM incearca doar sa ofere un loc si o ocazie pentru indivizi sa interactioneze intr-un mod semnificativ, sa cunoasca si sa considere celelalte puncte de vedere, sa comunice si sa faca actiuni impreuna. Exista sute de festivaluri UGTM, cate unul pentru fiecare participant. Intre fiecare doua editii UGTM, sa existe sute de actiuni.

Participare. UGTM exista datorita implicarii, de-a lungul timpului, a multor indivizi ce au refuzat rolul de spectatori. Motivatiile acestora au fost din cele mai diverse, unii au renuntat in cursul timpului, poate dezamagiti, poate invinsi. Multe dintre momentele cu adevarat extraordinare la care unii dintre noi au avut sansa sa fie martori, s-au pierdut pentru totdeauna. UGTM nu este o institutie, UGTM are sens si substanta numai prin participare si sustinere.

Actiune. UGTM incurajeaza tanarul/tanara participant(a) la festival sa nu fie pasiv. EXPRIMA-TE, gaseste-i pe cei ce vor sa se implice alaturi de tine, fii tu pe scena anul viitor, organizeaza evenimente UG. Intreaba-i pe cei ce au experienta in organizare, sigur vei gasi sprijin.

O minima intelegere a conceptului si starii de libertate ar face acest paragraf redundant. Insa traim intr-o societate inca inchisa, in care frica primeaza ratiunii, in care individul spectator, sufocat de entertaintment si asaltat de lipsuri gaseste misticismul gloatei satisfacator, imbatator, psihotic, confortabil, pornografia violentei plina de satisfactii. Valoarea unui om este masura faptelor sale, si nu depinde de culoarea pielii, sex sau sexualitate.

-. UGTM Values and Guidelines

Freedom. Back in December 1989, Romania got its slice of freedom (according to a famous quote of the time). The concept of fredom supported by UGTM is opposed to the concept of those who believe that freedom is a gift from someone. UGTM encourages everyone to live, create, communicate, go places, think and act freely. Freedom must be a process of self awareness and practiced as such. Moreover, freedom must not be mistaken for mass delirium, nor the passivity of the audience.

Indivituality. UGTm is not trying to teach or prescribe universal solutions. Each and everyone of us has to find their own solution, their own life. UGTM is only trying to offer a place and an opportunity for people to interact in a meaningful way, to get to know and appreciate the different points of view, to communicate and take part in activities together. There are hundreds of UGTM festivals, one for each participant. Between two UGTM editions, there should be hundreds of events.

Involvment. UGTM exists due to the involvment throughout the years, of may persons who have refused their roles as part of the audience. Their reasons were very diverse, some have given up, maybe due to a dissapointment, maybe defeated. Most of the truly extraordinary moments whish some of us witnessed, have dissapeared forever. UGTM is not an institution, UGTM only has sense and substance through involvment and support.

Action. UGTM encourages the youth taking part in the festival to be active. Express Yourself, find the ones willing to take part in this, be on stage the next year, organize underground events. Ask the ones with an organisational experience, you will surely find support.


A minimal comprehension of the concept and state of freedom would make this paragraph useless. However, we still live in a closed society in which fear dominates reason, in which the individual suffocated by entertainment and and frustration finds the mysticism of the masses appealing, psychotic, comforting and the pornography of violence full of satisfaction. One's value is judged by ones actions not by the color of skin, sex or sexuality.
