Idea and goal of the workshop
The Erasmus + project BRIDGING examines the potential of the participatory cultural sector in seven European countries (Denmark, United Kingdom, Latvia, the Netherlands, Poland, Austria and Slovenia) to promote inclusion. The European participatory culture sector is broad and includes different actors in the different countries represented in this Erasmus + project. In general, these are the areas of amateur art, voluntary culture and cultural heritage, as well as forms of co-creative activities in which different groups of citizens and actors interact creatively.
As part of the project, a workshop will be held, bringing together different actors from this field. The aim of the workshop is to discuss opportunities, challenges and potentials of learning providers in the field of participative culture to promote intercultural and inter-European exchange. The following questions concerning the inter-cultural and inter-European context will be discussed:
- How should co-creative activities be organized, structured and implemented for people from different backgrounds and in an inter-European context? Which special features must be considered?
- What needs to be considered in the teaching and learning processes of co-creative activities when they take place in an inter-cultural or inter-European context?
- How can different publics for co-creative activities be outreached?
- What possibilities exist to promote, support and evaluate co-creative activities in the inter-cultural and inter-European context?
