The aim of this activity was to identify existing good practices at local level where urban art is used as a socio-educational tool for promoting the inclusion of young migrants and/or groups at risk of exclusion, whose experience can be extrapolated and used with our targe group.
These good practices can be seen as a reference and inspiration for future activities of our and other organisations. They can also be adapted to work other topics of relevance with young people, local population and other target groups.
In the final e‑Book of our project, you are going to find more detailed information of all these good practices.
