Creativity and transversal skills play a crucial role for the future job market and job profiles, nevertheless, the inclusion of these aspects into skills development approaches is still incomplete. That is why, during the European Year of Youth 2022, Creative FLIP is launching an open call for Cultural and Creative Sector (CCS) organizations and structures interested in establishing cooperation projects with schools, introducing students to creative professions and building ties with their local community. As part of the initiative, students will explore creative and transversal skills through a co-creation project, while also discussing and learning about related topics such as the importance of protecting and respecting intellectual property and creations. 15 Creative Facilitators will be selected to take part in the Learning Labs Program, receiving financial and organizational support to implement their projects.
Goals of the program :
The Learning Labs Program will enable students to enlarge their creative and transversal skills through project-based work and to get a first-hand impression on different types of work the CCS provides. The program aims to test innovative methods of integrating those skills in formal education.
Further, LLabs aim to draw attention to and create awareness about the importance of IP in the context of creative works and the respect of others’ IP. Why do creations need to be protected and what is the process of IP protection?
Finally, the program will strengthen cross-sectoral cooperation between the CCS and Education, stimulating long term collaboration to the benefit of both parties and making use of existing synergies.
Benefits of joining the Learning Labs Program :
Financial support of 7,500 EUR
Train the trainer sessions delivered by Creative FLIP partners to Creative Facilitators, to enable them to transfer knowledge on IPR to the students
