Youth Learning Through Arts seminar
Greetings from the Association of Finnish Children’s Cultural Centers. We are a national NGO with 36 member organisations all over Finland. We are working in the promotion of children’s rights for quality culture and arts. We coordinate projects and do advocacy work for children’s culture. We enhance cultural education plans in Finland and coordinate the biggest arts program for young people in Finland, the Art Testers: https://taidetestaajat.fi/en.
Our association is coordinating an Erasmus+ project Youth Learning Through Arts (YLTA) and you are very welcome to join our final seminar:
Youth Learning Through Arts seminar on September 5th at 14-16.30
Venue: Mundo-b, Rue d'Edimbourg 26
It is the European Year of the Youth and our Erasmus+ project we will organise a Youth Learning Through Arts seminar where we present the results and impacts of the project including innovative learning activities, art methods and tools that youth workers can utilize in their work.
The Erasmus+ project Youth Learning Through Arts (YLTA) is coordinated by the Association of Finnish Children’s Cultural Centers. Our project partners are Finnish Nature League (Finland), Pionirski Dom – Center for youth culture (Slovenia), Association for culture and education IMPRO (Slovenia), Malopolski Instytut Kultury w Krakowie MIK (Poland) and art center Cricoteka (Poland).
The YLTA project produced six workshops with art-based methods for youth work professionals and organisations in three countries (Finland, Poland and Slovenia). The themes included reactive ecocrisis, improvisation, drama and accessibility. Also, learning activities were organised in each participating country for art educators and youth workers on these topics. Three ebooklets will be published about the methods.
In the YLTA seminar we will present the operations and results of the project in each country. We will also publish the final YLTA paper at the event. In the paper, we are suggesting innovative methods to increase and ease the use of arts as a tool for youth work. The findings will be discussed in an interactive manner with the seminar participants. More information about the YLTA project: https://lastenkulttuuri.fi/en/international-cooperation/youth-learning-through-arts/
Also two Finnish innovations related to cultural education will be presented at the seminar: Cultural Education Plans https://lastenkulttuuri.fi/en/childrens-culture-finland/cultural-education-plans/ and Art Testers https://taidetestaajat.fi/en are great examples of successful operations that increase equality and quality in the field of cultural education as well as in basic education.
