Joining art, non-formal education and social work allows addressing creatively the issue of social and intercultural dialogue. But how can we understand each other, overcome our differences and design together a project that mix our skills and approaches?

Aims of the tool

The synthesis aims at:
- giving a glimpse at the way artists, social workers and people active in non formal education can complement each other in order to address social issues ;
- identifying the issues they are facing when implementing their project and how they can deal with them ;
- providing methods and tools to ensure a positive group dynamic; work on complex issues; evaluate a seminar and personal learning achievements.

Description of the tool

The synthesis includes:

- the detailed program of the AGORA seminar;

- A short presentation of the projects to which participants where introduced to (Les Ateliers-Rencontres, Toulouse - France / Ballaro Buskers, Palermo - Italy / Jutava Ruuhi, Karelia - Finland / The Recycled Creativity Festival, Berlin - Germany)
+ the issues the worked on;
- the methods they used to attempt to solve them;
- propositions theu made in order to overcome the difficulties encountered and/or to improve the project.
