10 – 16 May

Fethiye Muğla, Turkey

We are looking for individuals to join an arts project in Turkey.

Art and the power of artistic expression allow people to connect in ways that transcend traditional forms of communication fail to. By using various form of art, inter-cultural dialogue can be achieved in an alternative but very effective way. In sum, a “thinking out of the box” innovative approach combining the three key elements (non-formal education, ICT and cultural tools) that – according to what affirmed above – can lead to employability seems to be one of the solutions to the challenges and needs listed. Art+ gives a special attention on the intercultural communication and dialogue to reach migrants that often closed in their own – with innovative methods in order to stimulate their sense of belonging to the new hosting society.
