The pArt films
The project „pArt: take part in Art“ unites 6 different organizations in different European countries and aims to contribute to the preservation and popularization of the cultural and artistic heritage of their cities/regions for present and future generations. The project combines a variety of artistic activities with an educational background. We will be meeting over the course of two years in order to learn from each other about the various artistic, cultural, social techniques popular in our cities/regions. The main project topic will be to save regional (local) cultures from extinction. The partners will work with learners from disadvantaged groups in order to increase their European cultural understanding and, above all, give them a role in the local community. Art-based activities (dance, theatre, song etc.) will be used to support the personal development of adults who are disadvantaged through social isolation, lack of cultural opportunities or poor education. The partnership will be based on the workshop method: during each meeting the partners will learn from each other various methods of artistic expression and exchange their practical experience. The wide geographical range of partners for mobilities and common meetings will guarantee a correct process for a real inter-cultural exchange of ideas, thanks to which tolerance will increase and also an understanding for citizens of other countries on a European level. Local artistic heritage will be used as a common tool for promoting LLP international best practices. During the meetings we also intend to learn much more about the host organization, the culture of the country and the visited city.
