2023-1-PT01-KA122-ADU-000144878 – Living Arts: Innovative Approaches to Appropriation

Make Mobility Friends’s staff aware of sustainable development through Art, the transversality of theater techniques, and the pedagogical approaches for difficult audiences.

Training Course 01: Art and The Environment

The main focus of the KA122 – ADU – 7730D46D – Living Arts project is the promotion of sustainable development, the transversality of theatrical techniques, and attention to audiences in disadvantaged situations, aiming to expand the association at a local and international level.
With this project, Mobility Friends aims to strengthen its presence in the artistic scene and contribute to the dissemination of European values. We believe that the combination of efforts, knowledge, and experiences will significantly benefit everyone involved, contributing to the construction of a richer and more diverse artistic community.

The first Training Course of this project took place in the cold but warm city of Vilnius, Lithuania.

5 members headed to Lithuania to carry out the Project’s first Training Course, “Art and The Environment”.

During the mobility experience, our staff, have developed a perspective on the impact of art in people’s lives. They have honed their critical thinking skills and developed their creativity, and sensitivity to understanding how individuals express themselves through art. This teams them better in their professional path to engage with diverse demographics, ranging from adolescents to young adults.

They were impressed by Lithuania’s ability to repurpose spaces that would otherwise remain abandoned, transforming them into communal areas for people to enjoy. This inspired them to adopt a fresh outlook and consider the incredible possibilities for similar initiatives in their own country. This experience allowed them to foster meaningful relationships with other organizations and partners, while also gaining insights into Lithuania’s current societal landscape. Hearing about the struggles of individuals, such as the Ukrainian artist fighting to preserve her country’s culture, fostered a deeper empathy for the challenges faced in other nations. They learned more about artistic expression through their visit to the theater, where they discussed the technical and digital aspects of play preparation. Additionally, they explored the impact that these performances have on individuals, often serving as a place for social critique.

During their mobility in Vilnius, Lithuania, the group had an enriching cultural experience. They explored the picturesque streets of the old city, marveling at the historic architecture of its emblematic monuments. They discovered new neighboring cities, immersing themselves in the region’s rich cultural heritage. The snow that covered the streets provided moments of fun as they played and enjoyed the magical atmosphere of winter. These experiences not only enriched your cultural knowledge but also created unforgettable memories that will last forever. This cultural immersion is considered by Mobility Friends to be a fundamental part of Erasmus mobilities, as it promotes intercultural understanding and strengthens ties between participants.
