Our ‘Global Curiosity’ programme with Erasmus+
PROGRAMME UPDATE, APRIL 2021We are living in exceptional times!
At a time of diminishing resources, climate emergency, divided nations, fake news, Brexit and an increase in extreme far right activity across Europe...we have been hit by a global pandemic.
Our plans to travel between England, Poland and Greece, to explore how these issues are affecting young people, have been rudely interrupted by Covid-19.
Instead, our Global Curiosity programme funded by Erasmus+ is moving into a virtual phase. We have also been allowed to extend the activity, with youth professionals and artists in each country, until December 2022.
Our interactive virtual programme for 2021 will be facilitated by local Liverpool artist Sarah Bailey. We will:
- Share practice on artistic & creative methodologies for working with young people
- Learn about young people's concerns about global issues and develop their understanding
- Explore possible action research questions.
We still aim to achieve the physical visits, if possible, in 2022 but will have a contingency plan if travel is still not possible then.
