EU Erasmus + Project – Strategic Partnership in adult education – EUROPEAN PATH OF SOCIAL INCLUSION

In the course of European history, from the Greeks to the Romans over the Middle Ages up to the modern age, there is a clear relationship between „art“ and its influence on the physical and mental well – being and its effect on the health of the people and their detectable advantages for the prevention of diseases.

For this reason, we have Fundacion Escuela Solidaridad from Spain, http://escuelasolidaridad.org/?page_id=2, the social organization Artemide/ Landing (I), https://europa.eu/youth/volunteering/organisation/946901585_en, and the ÜberBrücken Kollektiv/ over- bridges collective (D), https://ueberbruecken.wordpress.com, which collectively decided a project with colleagues from different European countries, on the domain of art therapy, regarding the „application“, in the artistic, therapeutic and educational field, for people from disadvantaged life situations The risk of social exclusion. These methods are intended to provide the opportunity for professionals to continue their education and to use innovative practices that aim at a healing effect and at the same time offer an opportunity for art therapy in our society to provide more visibility and recognition.

This project aims to develop, exchange and communicate with the organizations concerned, from Italy, Spain and Germany, in a relatively short period, innovative and effective competencies for specialists in the pedagogical, therapeutic and artistic field share and realize. In line with the European strategy developed for 2020, we want to significantly improve the possibilities for the above-mentioned experts, in terms of the quality of the training and the training conditions in their context. Through the acquired innovative methods, the teachers will strengthen their competencies and at the same time stimulate them in adult education utilizing effective methods, for socially excluded persons with the risk of marginalization.

Published on Oct 5, 2016 Story of a refugee

I had the great opportunity to make a short documentary about the story of a refugee living in Germany named Momo Tajik. I think it is imperative and our civic duty to engage in this refugee situation is going on in Syria, Afghanistan, and many other countries. We must look. and we must act. PLEASE share this video on your timelines…I hope that it reaches as many people as possible, and if you have time and wherewithal, consider contributing your efforts towards the alleviation of this issue.
Momo Tajik worked several years with the ÜberBrücken collective, first as a student and then as a performer and teacher, showing us his dances from his culture a
mutual exchange.
