Local Activities I

After sev­er­al attempts to orga­nize our coor­di­na­tion in Togo, project organ­i­sa­tions we decid­ed to go on with next steps and activ­i­ties of the project.

Every organ­i­sa­tion has start­ed now the first phase of local activ­i­ties. The first task in the agen­da is an analy­sis about the sit­u­a­tion of young migrants and urban art. Organ­i­sa­tions will inves­ti­gate the sit­u­a­tion of migrants in their coun­tries (per­cent­age, ori­gins, rea­sons to move, laws and pro­grammes to facil­i­tate inclu­sion, migrant par­tic­i­pa­tion, etc.) and rel­e­vant char­ac­ter­is­tics of urban art (start­ing peri­od, pro­file of artists, pop­u­lar­i­ty, main events, activ­i­ties for migrants, etc.).
They have also to iden­ti­fy exist­ing good prac­tices at local lev­el where urban art is used as a socio-edu­ca­tion­al tool for inclu­sion of young migrants and/or groups at risk of social exclusion.
The third task is to organ­ise a meet­ing with young peo­ple, migrants, urban artists, pol­i­cy-mak­ers and youth work­ers in each coun­try to make the project pub­lic, increase its vis­i­bil­i­ty (as well as the Eras­mus+ pro­gramme) and reflect on the sit­u­a­tion of migrants and how urban art can be a tool for inclusion.
Final­ly, each organ­i­sa­tion should car­ry out a diag­no­sis and def­i­n­i­tion of the spe­cif­ic learn­ing needs of urban artists and pro­fes­sion­als in the field of youth, such as train­ers, edu­ca­tors, youth work­ers, etc., that want to use urban art as a tool for inclu­sion and social transformation.

All the data gath­ered through­out this phase will be used to cre­ate and adapt the mate­r­i­al for the Inter­na­tion­al Train­ing Course in Mala­ga and future activ­i­ties in the frame­work of this and oth­er projects of the involved organisations.
