CrADLE
Creativity in Art&Design for Learners and Educators

The CrADLE project aims at developing and expanding the competencies of educators of older generation participants (54+) in specialized workshops in the field of visual expression, with an emphasis on teaching methods and tools by effectively using innovative solutions. The specificity of the program that will be developed through this project is that it will educate those persons who carry out educational programs with the elderly (54+).

The implementation of this project will produce more results, but we highlight key ones:

  1. Teaching staff who carry out workshops of fine and creative arts for the elderly will acquire competences to work with such persons through the educational program developed in the project.
  2. Through the work on the project, a manual will be created that will explain the methodology of working with the elderly in the field of visual expression.
  3. 11 creative expression programs developed.

The consequences of achieving the first key result are that fine arts teachers and other teachers will acquire additional competencies to work adequately with the elderly. This has the effect that they will be able to better understand older people and their problems and needs, which is especially important for younger professors. Furthermore, teachers will be able to share this newly acquired knowledge with colleagues in their schools and institutions where they work. Another key result of the project is a manual for working with the elderly in the field of fine arts intended for teachers of fine arts.

In its totality, the project contributes to raising awareness of the importance of creative expression and creation in the healthy aging process.

After the project is completed, the main dissemination event is planned – the final conference of the project where the results of the project will be publicly presented.
