The artist within – Applied eMOTION

The artist within – Applied eMOTION is a long-term European project funded by the Erasmus+ program. The strategic partnership’s aim is to share best practices between sectors and methods connected to art expressions. We support institutions in empowering their colleagues and target groups to develop their entrepreneurship and related skills by using different artistic tools in individual and group work.

We foresee that the transfer and/or implementation of innovative practices with the partners results in a greater understanding and responsiveness to social, psychological and cultural diversity of the target groups. In addition to that, professional development and sectorial cooperation will be reached at organisational, local, regional, national, or European levels.

Art does not solve problems, but makes us aware of their existence and through different ways of expression (especially having an integrative approach) we can work with the problems and lead them to another level of understanding.
