The project as a learning programme supports a state-of-the-art educational approach that focuses on the needs of the learners, and it provides 4 microlearning courses for artists, community leaders and art educators, to equip them with more competencies and skills to be successful innovators in their communities. It enhances social inclusion by fostering innovative, arts-based participatory and intercultural dialogue approaches.
