LABYRINTHEME aims to develop the potential and practice of museums and other institutions managing historical and/or cultural heritage as sites of learning and intercultural dialogue. This project intends to promote a more substantial involvement of the public and communities in which these museums and institutions managing historical/cultural heritage act by using alternative methods derived from various forms of participative arts, notably participative theatre, in their educational approaches towards the public. The partnership produces a training course to be available in the Comenius-Grundtvig Training Database and to be delivered to adult education trainers and teachers. Such a course is envisaged to have a support training area running on an Open Source Virtual Learning Environment. The course is supported by a handbook for trainers and a handbook for learners (available in book format by the end of the project), and by the project website, designed from the beginning as a virtual resource centre.In the context of an ongoing consolidation of the European policy on intercultural education, the impact of the project is seen to contribute to pooling methodologies engaged in the use of participative arts in education, while at the same time supporting the acquisition of 'soft' skills in relation to the use of ICT and digital media.
