Intercraft - A bridge between traditional knowings and cultures is an Erasmus+ ΚΑ2 project that aims to promote social inclusion, innovation, and intercultural dialogue with a new training path that can map and enhance the craft skills of migrants, social workers, and local artisans, relating them to craft knowledge of EU host territories. In order to achieve this it will develop a new training methodology to enhance the skills of migrants, social/youth workers, and the local art sector.
- INTERCRAFT atlas map: mapping and analysis of the social enterprises present on the national territory of the partner countries involved in the project, as well as at the EU, in which intercultural craft practices are activated according to sustainable circular economy practices.
- Joint curriculum: Designing an innovative joint curriculum that allows the learning of soft, digital, and green skills for three different, but intertwined, target groups (young migrant people, local artisans, social workers).
- Training kit: a Pilot Action will constitute a crucial action for the test of the joint curriculum designed, by collecting qualitative and quantitative data on the experience of the participating key target groups. The pilot action will be monitored and will lead to the creation of a training kit.
- Digital Tool: the structure design and creation of a Digital Tool, intended as a digital space social platform for sharing the material provided and produced during the previous stages.
Terra di Tutti is a social enterprise based in Capannori (Tuscany) and founded by Cooperativa Sociale Odissea in December 2018 with four main aims:
CIRCULAR ECONOMY → Using waste materials and transforming them into artisanal products.
ASYLUM SEEKERS, MIGRANTS AND REFUGEES’ WORK INCLUSION → Creating job placement for the migrants, asylum seekers and refugees involved in the projects.
INTERCULTURAL CRAFT → Enhancing and developing the craft skills of refugees, by linking them to the local traditional skills.
SUPPORT TO THE LOCAL CRAFTMANSHIP → Rediscovering and supporting the local artisanal knowings and competencies which are being lost due to an inadequate generational turnover. To achieve these goals, Terra di Tutti arranges several workshops to involve local citizens, artisans, people with fewer opportunities, migrants, and refugees in different projects about tailoring, printing, serigraphy, and carpentry. Connecting people from different countries and cultures, and facilitating them in deep intercultural dialogue, the social enterprise intends to support the creation of bridges between craft skills, knowledge, and competencies.
