New european project in Red Íncola. Our goal is to involve migrants, refugees and youth workers to build connection and community even through covid isolation by focusing on digital communication and street art!
The Covid-19 has a significant impact on youth including mental health concerns, loneliness, isolation; challenges in family relationships, and education. The situation is much heavier for young refugees. For this reason, youth workers need to develop specific skills, learn new methods with the support of competent and cooperative youth organizations.
Art helps stimulate creativity, it is a vector of social cohesion and allows people in need or difficulty to express themselves. Also, digital tools are the key elements for inclusion under the pandemic situation.
This project is led by a consortium made of 6 organizations in 5 countries (Italy, Spain, Belgium, Portugal, Turkey): Associazione Popoli Insieme, DOMNA, IAAD, Ecepaa, Embaixada da Juventud and Red Incola. G
Our methodological strategy:
- Communication, interaction, anti-fragility, creativity, process management skills of youth workers-foster community-based rehabilitation and anti-fragility approaches among youth workers and the cultural&creative sector grassroots organizations.
