Art for Social Inclusion: Energize Europe through Positive Participation
Date du début: 1 oct. 2014, Date de fin: 1 mai 2015 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

Arts for Social Inclusion: Energize Europe through Positive Participation is a youth exchange that will bring together 49 young people (7 participants from 6 partners from different countries, plus 7 participants from the host, over 7 days). The participants will come from backgrounds that have been linked with social exclusion such as those who have dropped out of school, the long term unemployed and those lower on the socio-economic scale. Each group will be lead by a young person currently working in the field of social inclusion in order to provide direction to the young people and share best practice. The overall focuses of the project will be to explore, raise awareness of and fight barriers to social inclusion that are central to the participants, and to propound the cornerstone European values of solidarity and brotherhood. The main aim of the project will be to build the confidence and trust of the participants through the innovative use of a variety of art forms, while educating them in how to improve their participation in society, both in the short and long term, without compromising their individuality and integrity. Participants will also use non-formal methods to each research and discuss social inclusion and the factors that affect it within their own countries, then work together multi-nationally, using input from their own culture, to raise awareness of and address these issues and the methods in which problems may be resolved. This will be done using the art forms they prefer, thereby promoting and presenting their culture and at the same time becoming part of a larger group and tackling a wider issue. Additionally, time will be given each day towards self-reflection outside of the activities and for young people to approach any topics with staff that they may feel are too private for them to address with the whole group. The end result of this self-discovery and artistic development will be a 10-15 minute filmed presentation from each group that addresses one of the issues of social inclusion. After the course, These final videos will offer an understanding of the way in which the constituent countries of the European Union can work together to break down barriers, whilst also celebrating and showcasing their beauty and passion. The films will then be disseminated to partners, relevant organizations and the participants themselves through as many different means as possible. The activities, which will last for one week, will be held in Cagliari, the main city of the island of Sardinia. The implementation of the project will be facilitated by the numerous accessible theatres and open spaces which will serve as venues in the city itself.
