The project “Art for Local Innovation (Art is Us)” is a two-year project co-funded by the European Union under the ERASMUS+ KA227 “Partnerships for Creativity” programme (Agreement Number: 2020-1-SI01-KA227-ADU-093618).
Art is Us project aims to use the transformative force of culture for community regeneration to respond to the severe impact that the COVID-19 pandemic has had both on artists and the cultural sector and on social inclusion and cohesion.
It equips artists, community leaders and art educators with key skills and competences for a sustainable creative career and provides them with the opportunity to be successful innovators in their communities. It enhances social inclusion by fostering innovative, arts-based participatory and intercultural dialogue approaches.
The project effectively uses the strong experience of all its consortium members in socially engaged arts teaching and content development, e-learning and multimedia, community arts initiatives and career guidance and skills development to design and develop a high-quality adults education course on Innovative Community Development.
