- To help refugees and migrants to socialise and express themselves without necessarily speaking the host country language
- To give EU citizens the opportunity to discover, learn from and understand the values and cultures of refugees and migrants and rediscover and enrich their own
- To offer the possibility of collaboration with organisations in other sectors in order to stimulate a more comprehensive, rapid, effective and long-term response to this global challenge
- Directly engaging and involving refugees and asylum seekers in each of the locations in the creation of artistic works for presentation in the project (Container Theatre/Film)
- Comprehensively championing the project activity to refugee and asylum seeker groups in order to involve people as audiences and as contributors to debate in the press and media and in seminar delivery. This contributes to ongoing cultural audience development in each location
- Substantially raising the profile of the refugee experience through the presentation of artwork in accessible, highly visible and high profile locations, with work that will touch, intrigue, inspire and challenge a broad cross section of the local population
- Showcasing and co-creation of cultural and/or audiovisual works across Europe
- Identifying refugee artists to support and commission through the project, enabling distilled experiences to be shared through art and the effective expression of different refugee perspectives and experiences
- Look-Up is a high profile outdoor art exhibition presenting visual art work from refugee artists on a large canvas in each city;
- The Container Project involves creation of pop-up theatre performances and the making and screening of short new moving image productions to share refugee stories;
- Journeys Seminars bring together artists, with refugee support groups and the wider public, to explore ideas and issues arising from the arts activity and its themes.

- To provide a means for youth work educators, trainers and practitioners to develop both products and processes that will support further the development of youth work practice that is inclusive, diverse and which promotes equality of opportunity
- To produce a network of partners and thus a community of practice across the partners involved in the project in order to develop knowledge and skills related to develop quality youth work practice
- Researching which of the following domains, from the Erasmus+ Inclusion and Diversity Strategy in the Field of Youth, prevent young people from taking part in employment, formal and non-formal education, trans-national mobility, democratic process and society at large, i.e. disability, health problems, educational difficulties, cultural differences, economic, social obstacles and geographical obstacles
- Researching how youth practitioners/organisations are seeking to make their services more inclusive, and what policies, approaches and methods are they seeking to use/adopt
- Researching what extra support are youth work projects/organisations seeking to put in place for those who may be marginalised and encounter challenges
- Identifying specific education and training programmes that seek to encourage inclusion, equality and diversity across: young people; student youth practitioners; and youth workers/youth professionals
- Needs analysis report – to assess the relevant issues of inclusivity, diversity and equality in EU and Italy.
- Principles and approaches report – to explore the rationale in each partner county as to why those involved in youth work should adopt an approach which is inclusive, diverse and equal.
- Good practice directory – sharing examples of good practice so that projects developing such an approach can discuss common issues.
- Practice resource – reference to current resources available to youth practitioners and further resources produced so that youth practitioners will feel further equipped to tackle challenges that prevent approaches based on inclusion, diversity and equality.
- Resource for educators and trainers – to support work for youth work students and current practitioners.
