Routes to Employment
Also available in: English | Italian

Performing and visual artists who want to find their places as professionals in the cultural sector need hands-on training provided by non-formal education. They need tools and skills enabling them to face complexity, not only intercultural and interdisciplinary open-mindedness but cross-disciplinary competences, and awareness of the contemporary artists’ role within community based projects and socially engaged artistic practices.

Routes to Employment. Arts and Culture as an enabler for growth is aimed at increasing the employability and life skills of young artists and creative workers, trained at formal and informal educational institutions, by accompanying them in the critical passage from education to profession. The project offers possible answers to the gaps in arts education and in the startup of artistic professions, by combining the open, flexible, holistic approach of the ROOTS & ROUTES creative education methodologies, with the training and advising system for the professionalisation of young artists and cultural workers developed by SMartBe. This will lead to developing and delivering on one hand:
• a transnational unified curriculum containing self-entrepreneurial training materials and methods, that includes personalised guidance, counselling and follow-up
• easy to handle guidance sheets where raw legal and administrative information is processed, to help artists and creative workers at the start of their professional path to face the complex nature of cultural work; this standard manual will consist of information material freely accessible online and will be adapted to national requirements.

In the pilot training activities implemented nationally, the approach to the technical, specialised skills will be embedded in a flexible non-formal setting aimed at
• enhancing the understanding of contemporary artistic culture as a field of organic and interconnected disciplines, skills, sensitivity
• investigating the relationship between contemporary arts and public sphere, and the artists’ role within community based projects and socially engaged artistic practices
• stimulating critical thinking and arousing awareness on personal responsibility towards oneself and the others when defining and pursuing one’s objectives.

In the second project year, three short term transnational joint training events will be organised for staff (managers and trainers) of all partner organisations, to exchange and test methods and practices in different contexts and with the involvement of selected professionals of the creative work sector. The confrontation, exchange and harmonisation of the various national pilot training experiences, as well as the thematic focus of the three train the trainers sessions - e-skills (networking and social media), transnational mobility awareness, contemporary arts and public sphere - will help developing a final trans-national unified curriculum based on learning outcomes.

Two sets of multiplier events will be organised in all partner countries. In the first project year they will be aimed at sharing and discussing the educational methodologies with local stakeholders and at collecting insights and recommendations for the trans-national unified curriculum; at the end of the project period, they will be aimed at disseminating in a creative way to a broader public the project’s results and achievements: according to the spirit of the partnership, methodological work and artistic expression will come together in site-specific public restitutions in form of installations, scenic talks, performances.
