Insertion des jeunes défavorisés par l'art
Start date: Dec 1, 2013,
The aim of the project we wish to develop is to encourage the integration into working life of young people aged from 16 to 25 from socially disadvantaged and immigrant backgrounds. It is these young people who bear the main brunt of unemployment and job insecurity. The project is intended to enable them to re-engage and acquire essential key skills so that they can choose the best path to follow and find their place in social and working life. We wish to offer an alternative to the traditional integration mechanisms and offer young people with integration difficulties a helping hand towards different and motivating employment. What we shall do is offer young people art workshops where they will be able to create an artistic project from start to finish. The various artistic projects implemented in the country of each participating body will be presented at a final international exhibition, which will be open to the public. The art workshops that we establish will be entirely geared to our target group and will take account of their origins. These workshops will enable young people to build their confidence in their own ability to turn the difficulties they encounter into a driving force. The educational method that we shall employ will combine socio-artistic education with an intercultural approach borrowed from intercultural psychology. Alongside these workshops, we shall create a parallel training course with local and international dimensions for trainers and educators. This course will be based on the experience gathered from the project and will involve the presentation of the project methodology and tools. In addition, a teaching manual will be produced for people in occupations in the field of integration. It will contain a compilation of case studies, the course curriculum and a description of the various educational tools developed in the course of the project.
