Spaces for Intercultural Learning

The goal of the project is to increase intercultural learning by using arts-based and action-oriented methods and produce teaching material for educators.

There is an urgent need for intercultural competences ? in educational institutions, work places and our private lives. We need intercultural competences also in order to solve the complex global challenges and conflicts. During the Spaces for Intercultural Learning project we explore how intercultural competences ? skills, knowledge and attitudes ? can be effectively taught and learnt.

During the project, we test a variety of arts-based and action-oriented methods in pilot groups in each partner country (eg. drama, creative reminiscence, grassrot comics and gamification). In addition to teaching methods, we will develop a reflection tool for educators. Within the project frame in Warsaw, we work with three pilot groups: prisoners, ex-prisoners and youth at risk of social exclusion.

The project started in September 2016. The result of the international cooperation will be a comprehensive material package which will be published online in 2018. In 2018 we also plan an international event in Warsaw which be an occasion to share the project outputs with other educators and activists.
