The kick-off meeting of the Creative School project was held on September 30 and October 1, 2019 in the Rosa Parks cultural and social center, in the 19th arrondissement of Paris (France).
Presentation of the main challenges and stages of the project by Pier Giacomo SOLA, from Steps association (Italy).
« The Creative School project has the objective to respond to actual pedagogic needs by delivering creative and critical thinking educational approaches into schools through engagement with the cultural sector, specifically museums, galleries, and science centres.
These two days were an opportunity for each partners to discuss several aspects of implementation and impacts of the project, in order to have a clear idea of the work to be done in the three years of the project.
This meeting was the occasion to:
Review the generalities of the original proposal and look at the recommendations received by the French National Agency;
Analyse the administrative and financial procedure for the Erasmus+ projects;
Detail the activities to be run within the different Intellectual Outputs and Dissemination and Multiplier events;
Have a look to ethical issues concerning research with children.
Next partners meeting bringing together all the partners should have taken place in Helsinki on 15 and 16 March 2020, but due to the epidemic of Covid-19 which is raging worldwide, this next meeting is postponed later. An online meeting nonetheless allowed us to take stock of the project's progress.
