BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE PROJECT:
“Educational theater as a place to raise inclusion and employability of people with disabilities” – or short – “Educathe +” or “e +” is an international strategic partnership of organizations active in the field of adult education. The project was developed on the basis of an international workshop of inclusive theatre “Educathe” that was designed as a drama-action workshop model, which was developed by Ivan Hromatko in his PhD thesis.
The coordinator of the partnership is UPSET (Zagreb, Croatia), in partnership participate Áratos (Salona, Greece), Akdeniz (Antalya, Turkey); OCEAN NGO (Athens, Greece), Tsveta (Sofia, Bulgaria), ADM (Syracuse, Italy), DE ZEYP (Brussels, Belgium) and I + I (Ventspils, Latvia).
During the project it is planned eight workshops that will last 40 days. The workshops will be attended by 112 people from seven countries and eight cities in Europe.
More about the project can be found on the official Erasmus + platform project results or on the official page of the project “E+ Platform” which serves as a free platform for sharing experiences, skills and knowledge as well as a repository for work materials, tools and all other products of the partnership.
E+ Platform is an open source tool produced by partners of the Educathe+ (Educational theatre as the place of raising inclusion and employability of people with disability) and financed by Erasmus+, the EU programme for education, training, youth and sport.
As the partnership develops, various tools for working with and for people with disability will be uploaded to the E+ platform, or E+ Toolbox:
You are welcome to freely use the materials and tools from the E+ Platform for educational purposes – keeping in mind the well being and integrity of individuals who might appear in media materials and tools (e.g. photos, videos).
