Supporting Community Development Through Urban Arts Education

applied project
Basic Info

Description

This project aims to support low-skilled adults in marginalized communities through activities and con-cepts of Urban Arts Education. Social inclusion and empowerment of this target group is the focus of the project activities and results. Dealing with art in the community of low qualified adults from marginalized groups overcomes socio-cultural barriers and provides access to new social groups. Here, transdisciplinary art disciplines function as communication instruments for intercultural dialogue and social integration. The URB_ART project is also a response to the COVID19 crisis, which has inhibited intercultural exchange and severely affected the creative education sector. Possible ongoing pandemic constraints and changes will be taken into account by the project by implementing innovative formats of (digital) education, communication, participation, dissemination.
