CHALLEDU

IDea - Intellectual Disabilities engaged in Art

The IDeA project aims to promote the inclusion of adult people with Intellectual Disabilities (pwID) by providing them high quality learning opportunities in artwork and art-crafts. This will be reached by upskilling the pathway and accessibility of their participation in society and economy by empowering both their art-skills, soft-skills and social media skills, and for art-work related social entrepreneurship by promoting their art-work products.

Objectives:

  • Promote the inclusion of adult pwID in culture, art, digital technology, society and economy/work-market. 
  • Provide high quality learning opportunities for adult pwID both on artwork and art crafts as well as on soft skills development for social entrepreneurship and promotion of their art-products through social media (digital media literacy). 
  • Create an upskilling pathway for adult pwID from making an art-product to bringing it to the market or digital market and thus offer them accessibility to both education and employability. 

Outcomes/Activities:

  • Development of IDeA methodology targeting adult educators and relevant professionals working with pwID on how to organize artwork labs and artcraft training for pwID as well as soft-skill development for promotion of art products through social media.
  • Implementation of a learning training activity (Train the trainer) for professionals working with pwID for upskilling their skills on IDeA methodology and guidelines
  • Implementation of local workshops for pwID in artwork, soft-skills and social media skills development for its promotion in a series of learning activities and creative labs.
  • Organization of social-engagement and art events and social media campaigns where pwID will promote their artwork applying the acquired skills.
  • IDeA events that will promote the methodology of the project, its results and the artwork for pwID as a means for inclusion, employability, digital literacy, social engagement and participation in the society, education and economy.
