Erasmus+: Youth in Action Netherlands (National Agency)
We will especially look into developing ideas in which art and creativity can be transformed into educational methods, instead of a being a goal in itself. For that reason, this PBA is not aiming to exchange and learn about artistic or creative methods and tools, but aiming to set up projects, using creative and artistic methods as educational tools, that fit the Erasmus+ quality criteria
In this PBA with training elements we gather youth workers representing organizations from the creative/cultural sector, who struggle with setting up quality youth exchanges and shaping the non-formal educational part in their project proposals. We will explore how to use creativity and art as an educational tool within a youth exchange and how to develop a youth exchange which meets the criteria of Erasmus+ Youth. ‘stART-up your creative exchange’ will also provide a platform to network and develop new partnerships and quality youth exchanges.
In this 5-days (including travel) Partnership Building Activity participants will get the opportunity to explore the possibilities of creating youth exchange projects. Through non-formal learning methods participants will get the chance to look into and learn about:
- art & creative forms as educational tools
- how to involve youth actively in developing and organizing youth exchanges
- creating good learning environments for young people and work with young people on awareness of learning outcomes and competences they develop during these youth exchanges
- intercultural learning & dealing with change
- project management, as the organizational part of these projects
- developing partnerships and youth exchanges
The PBA is open for voluntary and professional youth workers, working with young people through arts and creative methods. The focus is on newcomers in Erasmus + Youth, with no or little experience in international youth exchanges. Participants should represent groups or organizations that have plans to organize a youth exchange with dance, art, music, theatre or other creative forms as a tool. 28 Participants (18+) from Programme countries, willing & able to work in English.
