Join us for another Lunchtime Presentation to discover more about CAE’s current project, “Come2Art.”

This project connects local artists, community organisations and citizens through inclusive co-creativity hubs, to practically apply life skills through creative placemaking efforts, promoting active citizenship. In addition to engaging, training and mobilising artists and cultural workers, Come2Art provides life skills to members of local communities through artistic expression, approaching creativity as a resource for building resilience. Artists have a leading social role in building community resilience through arts, and involved citizens will acquire life skills, such as self-regulation of emotions, flexibility, communication and collaboration, digital content creation, critical and creative thinking.

The presentation will discuss the project’s outcomes, including:

  • an interventional framework for promoting life skills development and application through creative placemaking
  • a life skills curriculum (including trainer’s and trainee’s toolkit) through arts in the context of creative placemaking
  • co-creativity hubs connecting community members and artists / cultural workers for life skills application
  • creativity placemaking projects at the local level inspired by Covid-19 experiences

We will also share more about the upcoming Come2Art European Conference, which is open to all to attend!

Hosted by Culture Action Europe and the project partners: ActionAid Hellas (Greece), the Faculty of Fine Arts of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (Greece), MeltingPro (Italy), Clube Intercultural Europeu (Portugal), IoDeposito (Italy), and Creativity Platform (Greece)
