The idea behind our cultural approach is that cultural activities make complex topics accessible to young audiences. Young people experience unintentional informal learning: social skills are tested: they have to engage with an unknown peer and learn new abilities for themselves and do this as well together.
At the kick-off day for the final conference we could listen to the conversation between Prof. Dr. Kersten Reich, pedagogue and didactic researcher and Antonia Vogelgsang, Project Manager at Institut equalita e.V. They discussed about which requirements needed to be fulfilled to have transformative learning processes in education.
After the network came together in Wroclaw, Poland the journey continued and this time CULPEER4change went to Italy. The entire network was invited by the Municipality of Varese and Istituto OIKOS to Varese. From the 29th of September until 1st of October the partner organizations worked together for reflecting the three-year program and establishing future-oriented thinking.
It was spectacular to meet after such a long time in person. Each partner organization and municipality of the CULPEER4change network was present in Wroclaw, Poland. Our partner organization Brave Kids Festival hosted the four-day program including colorful performances, thoughtful encounters, and vibrant atmosphere.
A lot has happened at CULPEER4change in the last few weeks - especially on our social media pages. They now shine in new splendour. In order to create a simpler understanding of our topics, the colours of our three SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) and the content of our pages have been revised. With simple labels at the bottom, the posting sections are now easily and quickly recognisable. And the posting texts have also been changed.
We at CULPEER4change are one global education project among many great others, incorporating decentralized cooperation, realizing exchange among equal partners and influencing policy makers on a municipality level. Our activities shall support children and young people in finding their role in this world.
With the Coronavirus outbreak changing the way everyone in the world is working and living their daily lives, artists are learning to adapt to a “new normal” as concerts, workshops and art exhibitions are indefinitely put on hold. The coronavirus pandemic has closed museums and cancelled concerts, plunging many cultural institutions into uncertainty while also threatening a long-term effect on the arts.
