K1 Youth EVS Pro Art

K1 Youth EVS Pro Art

The Pro-ART project aims to bring positive focus on interculturality, tolerance, and diversity by enabling six young British and Italian volunteers to take part in 7-months EVS projects that will use arts as a medium to promote these values.

The volunteers will be organising local events where different art forms will be promoted in order to facilitate social and cultural dialogue. The project will equip the volunteers with skills and competences that can then be used to either return to formal learning or to secure sustainable employment upon completion.

The Pro-ART project will seek to benefit both the community and the volunteers, by inviting them to use their creativity to implement a series of projects that will bear their personal signature, foster interculturality, tolerance, diversity and social cohesion and combat racism and xenophobia at the same time. Pro-ART will link to the Erasmus+ programme objectives by: 1. Supporting learners in the acquisition of learning outcomes (knowledge, skills and competences) with a view to improving their personal development, their involvement as considerate and active citizens in society and their employability in the European labour market and beyond; 2. Enhancing notably the participants’ foreign languages competence; 3. Raising participants’ awareness and understanding of other cultures and countries, offering them the opportunity to build networks of international contacts, to actively participate in society and develop a sense of European citizenship and identity; Specifically, this EVS Project will seek to:

1. Promote diversity, intercultural and inter-religious dialogue, common values of freedom, tolerance and respect of human rights as well as on projects enhancing media literacy, critical thinking and sense of initiative of young people;

2. Equip youth workers with competences and methods needed for transferring the common fundamental values of our society particularly to the hard to reach young people and preventing violent radicalisation of young people
