PartArt: "Participatory art methods as encouragement for acting in real life"
- that is the title and also describes our latest project, where six partners will exchange their best methods and train educators in their countries to empower and activate citizens. Apart from Loesje e.V. sharing creative text writing we will get to know how to use theatre in communities and how to use media for social change. The partners are StranaIdea from Torino, Italy; KID Pina from Koper, Slovenia; Peer Productions from Nijmegen, the Netherlands; Croatian Center for Drama Education from Zagreb and OMIX from Ribadavia, Spain. The project kicked off with a four day meeting on the Slovene sea side where we reached a common definition of 'active participation', got to know each other and tried out a little bit of media tools. More educational meetings will follow, we will create a manual, website and pass our knowledge on to social workers, teachers and others.
The project is funded by Grundtvig.
