ARTivistic : Artistic Approaches to Solidarity, Inclusion and Creativity in Europe
ARTivistic comes from a combination of Activistic and Art. Activistic defined as a person who disposed to take an action or effectuate change. Thus, our project wants to effectuate a change by qualifying youth workers as artivists and change-makers to work with the young people to address the social issues that society faces today. To do so and to boostcreativity, we wanted to use the methodology of divergent thinking which promotes and uses the methodology of thinking basically out of the box as the creativity needs. The project will address the issues, by using art tools and divergent thinking methodology during its process. During the project cycle, we will address four main topics ( social peace, poverty,unemployment and domestic violence ) become more visible during Covid-19 by using art and divergent thinking methodology.
The main aim of the project is increasing awareness by addressing the cross-cutting issues such as social peace, poverty, unemployment, domestic violence raised during the Covid-19 through art and creativity. The project directly works with young people and youth workers who are involved in art. The training activity will increase the skills and knowledge of the youth workers working in the field of art and qualify them to work with young people in their own communities.
The specific objectives of the project:
- To qualify youth workers with the tools of art and divergent thinking methodology and make them change-makers within their communities to create awareness
- To create an awareness among young people about the issues of EU during the Covid-19
- To mainstream the usage of art as a tool of expression among young people
- To create a toolbox for youth workers to use divergent thinking methodology in the art to address the social issues
The project is going to be finalised in September 2022 and the results can be followed in the project website.
