2010 – 2012: Fashion Talk

big_19437374_0_400-94Fashion Talk war eine so genannte “Lernpartnerschaft” im EU-Programm GRUNDTVIG (2010 – 2012). Darin lernten Projektpartner aus vier europäischen Ländern zu einem Thema Initiativen und Netzwerke aus den anderen Ländern kennen mit dem Ziel des  fachlichen Austausches und der künftigen Zusammenarbeit. Ziel von Fashion Talk war die Auseinandersetzung von jungen Erwachsenen mit dem Thema “Mode”:

“Fashion plays an extremely important role in the lives of most juveniles and young adults. Peer groups create an intrinsic net of open or hidden requirements for the individual, and only persons with a high self-esteem and self-conscience dare to negate the dictate of fashion. For low income persons, the inability to equip oneself with all the “must have” very often leads to frustration and to a feeling of inferiority.

Because of the omnipresence of fashion, and the social importance connected with it, “fashion” could therefore be used in the educational sector as an ideal vehicle to convey knowledge about, and competences for the world in which we have to live and to work. “Fashion talk” means a horizontal educational activity that combines young adults’ passion for fashion with important information about issues which help them to become conscious, socially, economically and environmentally responsible European citizens.

The partnership will organise study visits in the countries of the partnership to investigate different models and approaches. It will put together staff members and learners from different European countries with the aim to communicate and to reflect fashion aspects at their personal levels, the level of the respective peer groups and in the context of globalisation.”

Beteiligt waren die Länder Österreich, Portugal, Deutschland und Italien.

Kultur und Arbeit e.V. brachte  insbesondere Arbeitsmarkterfahrungen in der Kulturwirtschaft und Erfahrungen in der Berufsvorbereitung für junge Erwachsene (siehe Projekt “Malerwerkstatt”) ein.

Dieses Projekt wurde mit Unterstützung der Europäischen Kommission finanziert.
