Meetings in each country

In the frame of Local Activ­i­ties I, project organ­i­sa­tions had to car­ry out meet­ings with young peo­ple, migrants, urban artists, pol­i­cy-mak­ers and youth work­ers to make the project pub­lic, increase its vis­i­bil­i­ty and the one of the Eras­mus+ pro­gramme, that is co-fund­ing our project, and reflect on the sit­u­a­tion of migrants and how urban art can be a tool for inclusion.

Most of the meet­ings were face-to-face, but, due to Covid-19, some had capac­i­ty restric­tions, were online or had a hybrid for­mat. Expe­ri­enced organ­i­sa­tions involved also par­tic­i­pants of pre­vi­ous projects so they could explain their experiences.

Besides pre­sent­ing the project and the Eras­mus+ Pro­gramme, the meet­ings con­tributed to the reflec­tion on the project top­ics as the sit­u­a­tion of migrants in each coun­try and how urban art can be a tool for inclu­sion and social trans­for­ma­tion has been deepened.

Par­tic­i­pants were very inter­est­ed in the project and asked all organ­i­sa­tions to con­tin­ue updat­ing them with the fol­low­ing activ­i­ties. In the case of organ­i­sa­tions out of Europe, some of them were sur­prised how Euro­pean Union can give them, nation­als of third-coun­tries, the oppor­tu­ni­ty to devel­op their com­pe­tences and acquire new knowl­edge through mobil­i­ties and Inter­na­tion­al Train­ing Cours­es, such as the one we are organ­is­ing in Malaga.
