The CHIMES project, through the use of a non-formal learning approach and the creative arts, considered as a vehicle to foster the re-engagement & inclusion of young people in education and training and in the labour market, aims to support them in their transition from social exclusion to social inclusion and to valorise the performing and creative arts by considering them not only as a source of entertainment, but above all as a means to develop and show new skills.
By offering creative workshops led by professionals in the art sector, the project aims at developing soft skills that are fundamental for promoting the well-being, employability and social inclusion of the young participants in the project partner countries. The training course and the methodology adopted will be shared and deepened through various resources, such as:
- A transnational audio-visual journal, aimed at documenting the results of the target group and promoting the role of the cultural and creative industry in the field of education;
- A methodological handbook: a handbook for professionals in the field of education and in the cultural and creative industry, bringing together all the pedagogical practices and methodology used in the field of non-formal learning so as to be used by other stakeholders;
- An analysis of the project’s impact as an evaluation tool.
