3nd Transnational Meeting of the project will be taking place in Sestao, Spain, on 1-2.06.2023.
Culture is one of Europe’s greatest assets, it represents a source of values, identity and a sense of belonging; but it also can contribute towards society well-being, social cohesion and inclusion. The cultural and creative sectors may also provide a stimulus for economic growth, job creation and international trade, therefore, cultural entrepreneurship holds a big potential to bring a significant societal change. In this line, immigrants are per se agents of cultural change, introducing new ideas, expertise, customs, cuisines, art and bringing with them different cultural traditions and forms of expression. Cultural entrepreneurship can provide access to employment for the most vulnerable groups, such as young immigrants, and helps to elevate them from the poverty and social exclusion trap, capitalizing on their cultural capital. Therefore, preparing young immigrants to engage into cultural entrepreneurship projects and overcome the specific obstacles they might face by exchange of best practices and developing innovative tools for youth workers is the main goal of the “CULTURE: CULTural entrepreneURship Education for young immigrants” project proposal.
The third project meeting aims to assess & validate the Curriculum, to discuss the progress of the Learning Campaign (LC) implementation, the organization of the Training of Trainers course in Spain, and start the preparation of the Multiplier events in all partner countries.
