The "ABC - Art for Building Community" is an output of the Erasmus KA2 Strategic Partnership Project under the title "Art is Us" project, which aims to use the transformative force of culture for community generation to respond to the impact that the COVID-19 pandemic has had both on artists and the cultural sector and social inclusion and cohesion. The project as a learning programme supports a state-of-the-art educational approach that focuses on the needs of the learners, and it provides 4 microlearning courses for artists, community leaders and art educators, to equip them with more competencies and skills to be successful innovators in their communities. It enhances social inclusion by fostering innovative, arts-based participatory and intercultural dialogue approaches.

Specific objectives:

Provide a relevant, targeted and engaging skills development programme that can be sustained after the end of project delivery.

Foster equality and Social Inclusion through participatory, codesign activities of arts-based innovative solutions that benefit all members of the targeted communities, regardless of social and cultural background.

Contribute to or stimulate policy initiatives that support arts-based education and interventions for community revitalization and innovation.

The Art is Us project includes 3 outputs:

Art is Us learning programme - provides learners with capacity-building material and guidance on how the learners' community innovation project can be implemented.

Art is Us web platform - fosters cooperation, sharing and exchange for the optimal design and delivery of projects.

Open Innovation Activities through which the creative projects are implemented that aim to bring change into communities. The Open Innovation Activities will support at least 60 ideas to be successfully delivered and make a change in the community.

Jugend- & Kulturprojekt e.V. (Youth NGO)

Jugend- & Kulturprojekt e.V. (JKPeV) was founded in 2004 with the aim of providing opportunities for young people and adults to develop and use their soft and professional skills and stimulate their creativity and entrepreneurial skills through non-formal learning. Located in Dresden, Germany, JKPeV is dedicated to culture, arts and youth work whilst promoting EU citizenship and the active participation of its citizens.

We design and implement educational Projects and learning and training materials addressed to young people, adults, educators, and youth workers as well as young people with fewer opportunities. We deliver training courses, seminars, and workshops on-site, online, and abroad with a focus on supporting our target groups' self- and professional development. At the same time through the implementation of cultural and art events at our multifunctional space - KulturCentrale and the Full Moon Gallery, we assist the cultural enrichment of the city of Dresden and the Free State of Saxony and foster cultural diversity while promoting emerging and established artists that live in Dresden. Involving experienced and highly knowledgeable educators, trainers, youth workers, and project managers from Dresden and abroad and including participants with fewer opportunities (NEETs, with migrant background etc.) to our on-site projects kindles an intercultural dialogue in the heart of an already highly acclaimed artistic hub -Dresden- while on the other hand, including local citizens in our abroad events brings back to the city a fresh outlook to familiar problems and a sense of belonging to a greater group –the European.

Addressing our aim, we focus on breeding international, cross-sectoral, and cross-disciplinary cooperation in Dresden and the EU by offering a number of Training Courses and Activities focused on Personal and Professional Development, Green, Social and Digital Entrepreneurship, Film Making, Digital Media and Social Media management, Cultural Heritage and History, Active Citizenship, Youth Work and Volunteering, Inclusion and Integration annually with local and international participants and educators. Our Public Events offer the possibility for all citizens of the city wherein they take place to experience first-hand the intellectual, cultural, and artistic approaches of individuals from other countries, facilitating thus the international dialogue on common issues.

Aside from Training sessions and Seminars, JKPeV also offers the opportunity to young adults to immerse themselves in the vision of JKPeV by offering Internship and Volunteering possibilities in our organisation (Erasmus placement, ESC, Bundesfreiwilligerdienst, Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs etc.). Working at the hub of such cultural activity allows young people –be they local or foreign- to better understand the possibilities, opportunities, and cultural diversity present within the European Union.
