We are constantly seeing how our changing world affects every aspect of our lives – including education and work. Everyday life demands more and more flexibility and creativity from us – why would this not also be true for our educational projects, in the field of non-formal education?
Stronger Peripheries is a large-scale cooperation project supported by the EU’s Creative Europe programme, gathering 14 partners, from 10 European countries. It acts within the performing arts sector through the creation of artistic productions, the training of creative and cultural workers, and the proposal of new cultural policies based on the promotion and assessment of participative practices. The project’s latest event, ‘Towards fairer international cultural cooperation: visions from the peripheries’, took place in Barcelona. The seminar was attended by our colleague Fanni Tóth, who tells us how she saw the meeting:
Natasa, Aba, Céline, Cheickna, Miloš, Marija, Sonja, Ivana, Martina, Kristýna, Hana, Viki, Heléna, Zsófi, Szilvi, Zalán – they are the trainees we first met at the What’SAP Academy at the end of July and with whom we will soon continue local work. We asked them 3 questions to know more about them! It’s time for you to get to know them, too!
CCG is coming up on our third annual summer programme! Those on the ground are often the best positioned to tell it like it is…so we asked a few participants from previous CCG programmes about their impressions. Participants came from various countries from Eastern Europe and beyond. They had diverse ways to find their way to our events: through newsletters, Facebook group posts and by specifically searching for a project kick-off programme on Google. No matter the way, we were happy to get to know them and keep in touch as alumni!
You might have came across the ‘New European Bauhaus’ term a lot of times on social media. That is one of the recent trending topics when it comes to EU Institutions or European organisations.

The aim of the Creative Change project is to develop the skills of adult education project staff to embrace the use of creative project methodologies, digital tools and collaborative strategies which will help them move from narrow process-oriented work to broader people-centred, impact-oriented practices.
Eszter has been working with us for over two years but some of the details about the motives and inspiration behind this initiative were news to us too. So we looked behind the scenes at Careers in the Common Good with her:
Careers in the Common Good (CCG) was created out of a desire to contribute to a more open, innovative Eastern Europe. Our mission is to inspire the youth of Central and Eastern Europe to apply their passion for the enrichment of their communities: there are as many paths as there are people, and we seek to empower young adults to find the path that is right for them.
This ten day event is designed for young adults in the region to acquire vital skills for the 21st century job market, to learn about the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, to reflect on their career paths and goals, and to be able to implement hands-on practices to initiate local change.
