VIDEO techniques for developing Appreciation, Respect and Tolerance for diversity in students
Start date: Sep 1, 2014, End date: Aug 31, 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

European Union has been built on the values of equality, human rights and acceptance of different cultures. It is important to cultivate these values from the school years, as the children will be the adults of tomorrow and the future of European integrity is in their hands. The respect of diversity is important at many different contexts. The most important at our times of crisis is the respect for people from different cultural backgrounds, be they immigrants, ethnic or religious minorities. Nevertheless, discrimination has many facets and it can address students with physical or mental disabilities, students with learning difficulties, students with different physical appearance or behaviour. Therefore, the interventions at the school curriculum to address respect for diversity should address the different forms of discrimination and approach the issue from all the different angles. In the project ”VIDEO.A.R.T.”, we intent to engage the students of our schools in dealing with discrimination and creating respect for diversity, employing video art and mobile technologies that are appealing to young people and at the same time will help them develop multiple skills and competencies. The partnership is composed by four high schools, namely the 4th General High School of Acharnes (GR) as coordinator and Fondo Formacion Euskadi (ES), Nösnäsgymnasiet (SE), Liceo Stabili (IT) as partners. The Athens Video art festival (GR), a private company, which will pass professional knowledge and expertise on to the participating school communities, completes the partnership. The main actions of the project are: - Learning activities in 4 countries - Making of videos by students - Good practice Guide - Online video platform and collaboration space - European video contest - European awards night The VIDEO.A.R.T. project is meant to use positive, creative, constructive, challenging and stimulating activities in order to teach school students a wide variety of skills and to have a durable impact on their attitude towards persons that are in some way different from the majority. It is also meant to involve teachers and students from many schools at national and European levels having as impact longer term collaborations.
