SPRAYS AND PENCILS European Tools for Intergenerational Solidarity and Social Inclusion is a training course (Action 4.3), 7 days long, that will be run in San Giorgio a Cremano (NA), Italy and will see the active participation of 26 peer educators, youth and social workers, trainers, facilitator and support staff from Italy, Holland, Portugal, France, Greece, Hungary and Turkey. The theme of the project is street art in all its shapes and in particular the writing as operative tool to promote the active participation of young people and adults coming from less privileged backgrounds in concrete actions aimed at empowering the life conditions in the suburbs of the big EU cities. Art has the power to create an interaction among different generations, to overcome stereotypes, to stimulate the intergenerational solidarity and to look for new forms of cooperation to re-qualify the outskirts. The project aims at developing new forms of intergenerational dialogue able to involve youth and adults coming from suburbs and to involve them in concrete and deep-rooted actions to promote the redevelopment of these areas and the empowerment of the life conditions of the local communities. As implemented activities are foreseen two interactive workshops, one on social inclusion and intergenerational participation and one on street art to promote intergenerational dialogue and social inclusion. Both will develop the following topics: non violent management of intergenerational, socio-cultural and economical conflicts, creativity and non formal education, legality, urban redevelopment through street art and good practices. It will be run a study visit to the “Cunto” project in Naples and the last day it will be organized the final event. During the training it will be proposed an interactive methodology, based on the principles of non formal education, where the different techniques are used to stimulate the interaction among participants and to facilitate their active learning.
