About the project
To make Europe competitive, cohesive and resilient in the future, we now need to invest in people: in education and training, skills, creativity, entrepreneurship and innovation, and health in the European Union,' reads the European Commission proposal for 2021-2027. In response to this appeal, we have decided to create a "European partnership for skills development and social inclusion through creativity and the arts".
The implementation of this project will contribute to eliminating the problems of marginalized groups (people with disabilities, seniors, migrants) and their social exclusion, and help them improve their key competences. These people, sometimes with problems of an emotional or psychological nature, often only by various art forms (music, art, dance, theatre) are able to open up. Art opens access to our interior: emotions, needs, fears. This is especially important in the times of the pandemic that all of Europe is currently struggling with. The pandemic seriously hindered this part of society both in terms of access to culture and art, as well as active participation in its creation. Counteracting the effects of these difficulties is therefore particularly important now. In our project, we want to train educators working with groups at risk of marginalization, so that they can show their students the way to active and creative participation in culture and art, and thus improve their position in society, including the labour market.
