At the heart of social inclusion is a belief that arts and culture are for everyone. The project wants to demonstrate that this particular sector has great potential as a framework for vocational education and training.
By exploring different practices and methodologies to be found throughout Europe and by transferring innovations from earlier projects, the objective of “Count Me In” is to build an interdisciplinary resource on how to use the arts and cultural sector in VET for special needs groups.
2-year Transfer of Innovation project financed by the EU’s Lifelong Learning Programme, Leonardo da Vinci.
