The main activity of the project is the exchange of artistic methods among the partners in order to train volunteers to develop adult education in disadvantaged groups making use of art methodologies. The exchange took place especially by means of workshops that were organized by each partner and attended by volunteers from the other partnership members.

Five workshops were foreseen during the 2-years project life, each workshop being focused on a methodology in which the organizing partner is expert:

  • Contempla-Trilhos, drama and dance;
  • Fepamuc, creative writing;
  • Siauliai University, handicraft and decoupage;
  • Sisli Technical and Vocational High School, shooting a film;
  • Tecnopras, drama and sailing.
