ART as a vehicle for Education and Social inclusion
Start date: Nov 1, 2013,

Art as a vehicle for education and social inclusion is one of prominent themes covered by the LLP throughout its implementation. Still there has been no KA4 initiative which would attempt to secure maximum impact from these projects in support of the EU2020 and ET2020 strategies. The present initiative answers the need of creating a trans-sectoral platform for the exchange of training methodologies/approaches developed by the previous LLP projects in the field of inclusive art as well as effective multiplication and mainstreaming of their validated results. The ARTES project proposes to create a community of practice of European educators engaging with social exclusion through arts-based educational measures. The process of building, growing and sustaining the community involves the following:- Setting up on-line learning and communication environment using state-of-the-art community oriented technology- Creating knowledge management framework for capturing, organising and transferring validated methods for education and social engagement of the disadvantaged through art- Engaging arts educators working with the disadvantaged in the exchange of their approaches on the platform- Collecting material from across Europe on how key competences are fostered in arts-based educational programmes- Editing exemplary content as on-line learning paths giving an insight into effective learning processes- Disseminating and exploiting the methods and resources featured on the platformEnvisaged impact:- Raised professional skills of the members of the community in the use of arts-based methods- Improved key competences of disadvantaged learners, especially their communication skills, interpersonal, intercultural and social competences and cultural expression- Improved understanding of the educational value of inclusive arts on the part of public, corporate and private stakeholders
