WHAT iS INCLUSIONART?

InclusionArt is a 10 month Strategical Partnership in the field of youth project, that involves five organizations from different European countries (France, Italy, Portugal and Spain), whose the main aim is to raise awareness about the importance of fighting against inequalities and any kind of discrimination, for building a more egalitarian, tolerant and fair society, using urban art as a socio-educational tool.

Objectives:

  • To improve key competences of participants and urban artists for carrying out actions that contribute to inclusion and fighting against discriminations;
  • To build a space for reflection between youth workers and urban artists on parameters, behaviours and attitudes that are based on discrimination; 
  • To exchange experiences, good practices and develop new educational tools for working inclusion and fighting against discrimination through urban art
  • To promote a higher quality of youth work, with emphasis on young people with fewer opportunities, promoting the internationalization of their work; 
  • To create a network of organizations that work with urban art as a tool for social transformation, inclusion, equality and comprehensive development, in order to promote cooperation and exchange of good practices between Programme Countries and other countries of the world.

Main Activities:

  • Transnational Coordination Meeting in Lisbon (Portugal): to specify strategies, working methodologies and details of activities;
  • Local Activities I in each country: to analysis the situation of discrimination in each country. Identification of good practices in the field of inclusion through urban art. Meetings with stakeholders. Learning needs.
