This project has been funded with support from the European Commission.

The main activities of the partnership consist of international theatre (and other performative arts) workshops and project managers meetings.Or, as Erasmus+ likes to call them – short joint staff trainings and transnational project meetings.
The main purpose of the workshops is to empower the participants, develop or enhance their “soft skills” (EU Key Competences) and make the issue of prejudice toward people with disability in the labour market more present in the public eyes – by giving a positive public performance at the end of the workshops. Therefore, all workshops will end with a public performance – in order to disseminate the positive experiences from the workshop and engange the public about the issue of prejudice that people with disability face in the labour market.
On the other hand, meetings of project managers serve as a live communication tool where partners can discuss at lenght the issues of the partnership, plan future activities and develop the modalities of sucessful cooperation.
LOCATIONS OF THE WORKSHOPS
The workshops will be held every two to three months in seven countries and eight cities: Zagreb (Croatia), Thessaloniki (Greece), Brussels (Belgium), Antalya (Turkey), Athens (Greece), Siracuza (Italy), Sofia (Bulgaria) and Venspils (Latvia).
Each workshop will be an unique opportunity for the local partner to present their method of work in an international setting (which is often missing when working with issues of people with disability) and also an opportunity for all partners to combine, alter, explore and define new methods and enhance their own work.
One the other hand, project managers meetings will be held three times: starting in Zagreb (Kick off meeting), continuing in Antalya (Interim meeting) and finally meeting again in Zagreb (Final report meeting). The last meeting will also include a media conference where results of the whole partnership will be presented and the seed of new partnership (or even an network) will be sawn.
