The IntegrART is a European Solidarity Corps long-term project happening in Kraków, Poland since 2017. The topics of the project include: art, creativity, inclusion, integration through culture, professional skills, events coordination, cultural differences, ecological and digital transition.
Volunteers will have a chance to create cultural events, work with children and youth, implement their own ideas and art projects as a group. They will develop their organizational skills, intercultural understanding, communication and social skills. The coordinating organization is Cultural Centre Dworek Białoprądnicki. The hosting organizations are: Cultural Center Dworek Białoprądnicki, Cultural Club Przegorzaly, Cultural Club Wola, Cultural Club Mydlniki, Cultural Club Łokietek and High School XXVII.
The Organizations mentioned above are going to host the volunteers and lead a diverse range of educational and cultural activities connected by the idea of “integration by art”. Integration is here understood on various levels:
• integration with the local community,through language and culture;
• integration as an opportunity for people from different backgrounds to meet
With the activities of this project we want to promote and support international integration, intercultural learning, and intercultural dialogue. All hosting organizations have their own specific working methods. Some of them will fulfil the project’s’ goals by organizing cultural events with volunteers, some will allow volunteers to work with children and youth.
The volunteers will have a chance to develop their organizational skills, intercultural understanding, communication and social skills. Volunteering in different hosting organizations should not be an obstacle for creating one team that can help to implement the volunteers’ own ideas. IntegrART will involve volunteers in activities such as:
- Organization of cultural, artistic, and ecological events
- Design of promotion campaigns
- Work with children&youth
- Creation of a “Krakow multicultural network”
- Implementation of their own ideas and project as a group
- Promotion of integration through meetings, workshops, and “being together” with others.
