The INSART project aimed to provide real opportunities for the personal and professional development for disadvantaged young people and young people from migrant backgrounds across 4 European countries – through artistic experience. The project demonstrated how artistic techniques can give confidence to young people and support them towards the labour market by developing their non-cognitive skills within a non-formal or informal environment as opposed to formal academic environments, often inaccessible to the target group.
The INSART Manual titled “Youth integration through art and interculturality” provides an overview of the innovative methodology of combining intercultural approach with artistic mediation (specific artistic theory “Real path/Imaginary path” and “active principles of art”), which were used during the artistic workshops with young people and trainers within different forms of art: photography, dance, visual art and theatre.
This manual aims to spread the INSART methodology across Europe, providing a source of inspiration of training for potential trainers, organisers, educators and artists who focus on working with disadvantaged young people and who would like to apply the principles of this manual to support their integration.
Target: Trainers, educators, artistic associations, employment centres, inclusion centres, youth
