Resource for trainers working in youth integration. The manual will be a report of the project and the training programme developed during the project.
At the end of the project a final conference and an exhibition will be organised in Berlin to bring together trainers and other stakeholders involved in Adult education and to show the artistic works.
The five-day training involved 17 people among participants and facilitators coming from different countries in Europe to learn the artistic mediation methodologies that have been tested and promoted during the INSART project.
Participants took part in workshops experimenting in the active ingredients of arts in the areas of photography, visual arts, theater and dance provided by the artists-facilitators who were trained during the project on the artistic methodology real path/Imaginary path developed by the artist Werner Moron and Les Paracommand’arts. Participants then spent the last two days of the training working closely with the artist as mentor to create their own personal project based on what they have learned and focusing on one of the four artistic areas. Participants then presented their final art works to the group at the end of the training.
The final conference was held on the last day, the 13th of May 2016 and brought together the participants of the training and many other educators and stakeholders involved in adult education. Moreover, few of the youngsters that took part in the local trainings held in 2014 in each partner country, were invited to attend the conference.
The artist Werner Moron, attended the conference to present the artistic methodology real path/imaginary path to participants.
During the morning, the results of the local trainings held in 2014 were presented to the audience. Moreover, participants were involved in a round table to share their personal experience in the INSART project. Two participants form Italy, Milad and Giuliana, spoke about the dance training they attended in Palermo in 2014 together with a group of youngsters coming from different migrant backgrounds.
During the afternoon, the workshops of the four artistic areas were run and the results of each workshop were presented at the end of the day.
After the project activities have come to the end, the consortium is now finalising the INSART Manual for trainers and educators who are involved in the intercultural field and aimed at using art mediation to support the inclusion of young people. The Manual collects all the results and lessons learned by the artists-facilitators during the project, and provides a guide for trainers to replicate the activities and methodology used in INSART in their own local context. It will soon be downloadable on the website in French, Italian, German and English.
All the results of the personal projects will be soon available on the INSART website as part of the catalogue of art work produced during the project.
One of the deliverables of the INSART project is the creation of a manual for trainers, artists and educators. The manual will contain all information and practical worksheets on all artistic activities carried out within the projects. Here is the executive summary of the manual in English. The manual will soon be available in four languages (French, English, Italian and German) and will be downloadable free of charge from this website. Stay tuned!
In the framework of the LLP Grundtvig-funded project INSART we publish here a video created by CESIE with backstage images and interviews to several young participants of the project’s artistic workshop that was held in Palermo.
Dancer Soad Ibrahim led the Italian dance and body movement workshop. It resulted in three video performances (check them out here) and greatly contributed to intercultural exchanges and increased self-awareness in its seventeen participants, both Italian and with a migrant background. As one of the interviewees put it: “I noted how there were differences amongst participants in this workshop…But they were not real differences. We were all like a big family in this workshop!”.
Upcoming events in the project’s lifespan will be the final international event in May in Berlin, which will see the participation of artists, educators and youngsters from the project’s four participating countries and the digital manual with infos on how art can play a decisive role in intercultural contexts.

The LLP Grundtvig-funded project INSART is an innovative project which aims to provide real opportunities for personal and professional development for disadvantaged young people and young people from immigrant backgrounds across 4 European countries – through artistic experience. The project is innovative because it demonstrates how artistic techniques can give confidence to young people, and support them towards the labour market, developing their non-cognitive skills within a non-formal or informal environment as opposed to formal academic environments which are inaccessible to the target group.
If you would like more information about the international training and final conference in Berlin on 9th -13th May 2016, please contact email@example.com.
On Friday 8th April, as part of the LLP Grundtvig-funded project INSART, CESIE delivered a one-day training event titled “Dancing for Interculturality” in Palermo addressed to educators, youth workers, artists and people who involve dance in their work and operate in the intercultural field.
In Palermo, 14 participants learnt specific movement techniques that they can use in their work with young people particularly to overcome cultural discrimination and support young people to develop new competences and confidence through intercultural and artistic expression. The activities carried out were based on different artistic mediation methodologies which have been tested and promoted by the partnership of the INSART project, in particular the “real Trajet / Trajet dreamed” (“real path / imaginary path”) developed by Werner Moron and Les Paracommand’arts. This included experience sharing based on movement and non-verbal language, connecting experience to the exploration of art mediation and interculturality and final performances based on movement and what they had learnt during the day.
The training was led by dancer and trainer Soad Ibrahim who had also participated in the residential artistic training for trainers in Lièges (Belgium) and who led the INSART socio-artistic workshops in Palermo for 17 young people from Italian and migrant communities in 2014.
During March and April, local trainings targeting trainers and educators have taken place across the four partner countries in Germany, France, UK and Italy based on the topic of art as a mediation tool in the intercultural fields and to support the inclusion of disadvantaged young people. Partners have investigated and explored different artistic methodologies based on their own expertise and good practices for example, Merseyside Expanding Horizons (UK) dealt with visual arts, BERLINK (Germany) with photography, ELAN (France) with theatre and CESIE (Italy) with dance.
The consortium is now planning and preparing a five-day international training and final event that will take place in Berlin on 9th – 13th May 2016 to provide further opportunity for trainers and educators across Europe to learn the artistic mediation methodologies which have been tested and promoted during the INSART project. The final event will also bring together trainers and other stakeholders involved in adult education to show the results of the artistic works produced by the young participants and trainers.
The three video-performances of the LLP Grundtvig-funded project INSART are finally online!
The performances have been designed by the 17 young participants, within Palermo’s INSART workshop, which was held last year, under the supervision of artist Soad Ibrahim. The performances allowed the young boys and girls from Italy or with a migrant origin to explore a new dimension, to increase their competences and to discover that anyone can be an artist a little bit.
CESIE wishes to thank its 17 participants and wish them all the best for their future! Thanks goes to: Alessia, Baro, Emanuela, Amadou, Noemi, Chiara, Mamadou, Giuliana, Kawsu, Ahmed, Sanou, Sana, Tatiana, Kalifa, Ahmed S., Maryna and Milad.
During the meeting, project coordinators and artists exchanged their views on the artistic workshops that were carried out so far. In the last few months, circa 40 young Europeans (with or without a migrant origin) increased their intercultural, linguistic, interpersonal skills and self-esteem, through the use of plastic arts, photography, dance and theatre.
The partners also met some of the young participants of the UK workshop, organized by Merseyside Expanding Horizons, and appreciated their artworks.
The artistic activities within the LLP Grundtvig-funded project INSART have come to an end.
On Monday 27th of October, the 17 young participants performed three choreographies in the streets of Palermo. INSART has allowed young boys and girls from Italy or with a migrant origin to explore a new dimension, to increase their competences and to discover that anyone can be an artist a little bit.
The project will continue with a training for employment and youth organizations, as well as with a final exhibit which will take place in Berlin.
CESIE wishes to thank its 17 participants and wish them all the best for their future! We also learnt a lot from them! Thanks goes to: Alessia, Baro, Emanuela, Amadou, Noemi, Chiara, Mamadou, Giuliana, Kawsu, Ahmed, Sanou, Sana, Tatiana, Kalifa, Ahmed S., Maryna and Milad.
The participants are young boys and girls from Italy or with a migrant origin, between 17 and 26 years of age. The workshop is held by dancer and trainer Soad Ibrahim and is allowing the youngsters to explore a new dimension, to increase their competences and to have fun while getting to know each other.
The video-performances were executed by artist facilitators and project managers of the 5 partner countries, under the artistic direction of “Les Ateliers d’Art Contemporain”.
After a training in intercultural psychology, participants expressed their own creative idea through a text, then a song and ultimately a video-performance. In order to do this, participants were trained in art, singing and dancing and were supported by artists, dancers, musicians and sound technicians.
The training will serve as a basis for the artistic workshops that the artist-facilitators are currently carrying out in the 5 different countries.
