ABOUT US

About ArtsTogether

The ArtsTogether project aims at developing and testing a curriculum based on artistic activities and collaborative approaches that will be used in order to equip teachers for dealing with diversity, fostering mutual understanding and respect among their students and improve the educational performance of migrant students.

  • Our Activities

    The activities will have direct beneficiaries, children of migrant background which will create a collaborative space with native children and will overcome linguistic and cultural barriers.

  • Our Action

    The action will be mainstreamed by organizing events with educational organisation and public authorities providing policy recommendations at educational and schooling level.

  • Our Vision

    Although, access to education for migrant children is almost universally guaranteed in the EU, but this does not automatically equate to access to adapted education, taking into account specific needs linked to socio-economic disadvantages and linguistic challenges. Furthermore, social and ethnic school segregation constitutes a serious barrier towards access to good education for migrant children.

MAIN OBJECTIVE

The proposed integrated approach is to make a more inclusive education system. This corresponds to the main objective of the ArtsTogether project to create specific measures that target migrant children in early childcare and primary education, aiming to provide comprehensive support to eliminate the educational disadvantage they experience and cultural barriers.

Specific objectives of the action

The project has several specific objectives that aim to the achievement of the proposed actions. In addition, the specific objectives correspond to the general objective to eliminate social and ethnic school segregation and make a more inclusive education system and comprehensive support by providing a combination of elements including linguistic and academic support, parental involvement and intercultural education.
