Recovering inclusion through Creativity After Pandemic
In the last two years, the main priority of governments around the world has been to deal with the health and economic consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic. However, the outbreak also had a deep impact on social and community life by isolating people from each other for a long time. This unprecedented situation has even more hit those who were already more vulnerable, especially youth.
This is why the ReCAP project aims to support the active involvement and civic participation of youth, through non-formal learning activities, with a special emphasis on young people with fewer opportunities, such as girls, NEETs, people with a migrant background, minorities, youths from the LGBTIAQ+ community. With the pandemic, these people have been further marginalized from the socialization places. It is, therefore, necessary to recreate the social fabric by allowing these young people to express their feelings and challenges in the public space.
In the framework of the project, partners will conduct an in-depth analysis of the needs of disadvantaged youth to participate end be involved in their community life following the pandemic, which will give them a better understanding of the current social context of vulnerable young people. With this project, partners and stakeholders will also be able to be supported in their work to mentor, encourage and assist young people. Partners will have new practical tools and resources to provide to youth workers and young people and they will get access to a wider network of stakeholders working with vulnerable youth and using art-based teaching approaches.
Objectives and results
The final scope of the project is to PROMOTE THE SOCIAL INCLUSION AND CIVIC ENGAGEMENT OF YOUTH (14 – 29) THROUGH THE USE OF SPECIFIC ARTISTIC AND CULTURAL TOOLS. It aims in particular to support the social inclusion of youths with different types of disadvantages, such as cultural, social, economic disadvantages, migrants, NEETS, with specific attention to girls, across all these categories.
To pursue this final outcome, the project intends to achieve multiple results:
IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF YOUTH WORK.
