The InCommon Toolbox experience

InCommonExperienceThe InCommon Toolbox project has developed the Cultural Citizenship Scale (ECC), a methodology for the exercise of active citizenship through culture aimed at migrant women, third-country nationals and refugees.

The scale is intended to be a flexible and easily adaptable tool to offer migrant women the support they need at the right time. The reasons for migration, the motivation for migration, the conditions of departure from the country and the situation in destination, the duration of the migratory trip, the episodes of violence due to the fact of being women, cultural differences - not only with the host country but also among the different participants; the language proficiency, the gender perception or economic situation make up a diverse group with different needs.

InCommon project partners have implemented the scale in the field and tested its possibilities with a positive result. That is why we want to briefly present the different experiences that have been carried out in the participating countries of the project.

InCommon Toolbox Final Conference

Towards migrant women and refugees cultural citizenship

InCommonFC1IMPORTANT NOTE:

The COVID 19 global pandemic makes unviable to hold the conference on schedule. These are unexpected and rapidly evolving circumstances beyond our control. Once the alarm state ends, we will resume the activities for the dissemination of the materials and InCommon experiences. The desire of the InCommon team is a prompt containment of the virus and a quick recovery of those affected.

InCommon Toolbox is a project funded by the Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund (AMIF) of the European Commission for the integration of refugees and migrants, with the participation of partners from Austria, Cyprus, Spain and Greece. The project has implemented, along more than two years, an individualized guidance pathway aimed at 400 migrant women to achieve their full participation in the host community through culture.

As a final touch to this work we will hold a final conference involving all the agents who participated during the lifetime of the project.

It will be a day in which we will present the results of the project and make a reflection on integration through culture and education. Special attention will also be given to other issues such as improving access to cultural resources by the migrant population at local level or the specific barriers migrant women faced in their integration process.

As starter here it is the agenda. Attendance is free and open prior registration: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
