ARSIS Association for the Social Support of Youth is member of the consortium for the implementation of the European project “ArtsTogether – Integrating Migrant Children at Schools through Artistic Expression”.
“ArtsTogether” is co–funded by the AMIFund of the European Commission and its duration is 24 months (January 2018-December 2019). The core partners are 10 institutions from five different European countries (Greece, Italy, Austria, Belgium, UK). The main objective is to create specific measures that target migrant children in early childhood and primary education, aiming to contribute to the elimination of the educational disadvantage and cultural barriers they experience.
The project ArtsTogether 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 pupils and improve the educational performance of migrant pupils.
Also, the project’s view is 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.
