ARTS4ALL

Description

The COVID pandemic has brought about dramatic changes in society; education specifically has been greatly affected. Educators were asked to drastically adapt their pedagogies and methods in order to ensure continued access to education. Unfortunately, this exacerbated the effects of inequality, highlighting the lack of access and know-how to essential digital tools for online learning for students with fewer opportunities ( laptop/internet/use of technological tools etc.). Our project, Arts4All, is informed by the research showing that performing arts can provide students with fewer opportunities a creative space for exploration and expression of identities, for challenging discrimination and social exclusion, whilst also fostering integration into culture and society; arts have beneficial effects on youth like challenging discrimination, mitigating social exclusion, and fostering intercultural dialogue. As such, the Arts4All project will adopt an integrated art pedagogical approach to enhancing the use of arts for social inclusion, using digital means. Given the adverse impact of the digital environment for all students, we aim to contribute to a growing anthology of digital tools and combine creative arts learning with distant learning, to promote social inclusion and integration, through an innovative mobile application. For more information on our objectives check out our website. The Arts4All Curriculum Experts in music, theatre, and visual arts will develop a curriculum targeting adolescents, and especially those with fewer opportunities, that incorporate formal learning environments (school, in-person educational environments) with home environments. A manual will be developed alongside the curriculum to ensure deep understanding and ease of use for educators, art teachers, and youth workers. The Arts4All Mobile App and Open badges The curriculum will be adapted to a free, innovative, and research based mobile app led by consortium partner Center for Social Innovation. The app other than being available in all partner languages, will also provide inter-cultural opportunities for sharing artistic creations between users. Users of the app will be able to accumulate badges that can be used to collect various certificates as well as networking tools.

Objectives

The project’s objectives are to examine needs and best practices in the partner countries on using arts as a tool for inclusion while developing synergies between organizations focused on social inclusion and organizations in the culture and creative sector of the partner countries to develop new tools and methodologies in the education of arts. It also aims to provide a digital tool for learning through entertainment and to promote social inclusion on which the interested parties will be trained. Finally, it aims to promote the effectiveness and importance of arts to support the recovery of the cultural and creative sectors while promoting the idea of social cohesion.
