The “Insertion des jeunes défavorisés par l’art [Inclusion of marginalized youngsters through art]” (INSART) project, involves a Consortium of 5 organisations. It aims is to improve the employability of young marginalized or migrant people aged 16/25.
As youth unemployment progressively increases across the EU, social exclusion and marginalization are causing severe consequences on young people. The INSART project will use an innovative methodology that merges artistic pedagogy and intercultural psychology. Social Excluded young people will receive the necessary tools and training that will enable and empower them in a new and more efficient manner, demonstrate the important role art has in all situations and for all kinds of recipients.
The training sessions will enable participants to use artistic techniques (drawing, dance, music, and film making) to support their personal and social development, and understand their inclinations and desires. They will discover their hidden and underrated skills and will enhance them. Moreover, the artistic products and performances of these pilot sessions will be exhibited at the final conference in Berlin.
The project also aims to pass on this creative inclusion methodology to adult trainers, educators and employment professionals, who will benefit from training and a manual on youth inclusion through art.
