Collage Arts


Arising from the experience of Euro-Aspire, Collage Arts has been working with a number of partners, new and old, across the European Union to develop a more strategic approach to sharing know how and supporting trainers in the non – formal learning sector in the creative and cultural industries.

Collage Arts has been successful with a 3-year LLP project to build a European Network for Cultural Learning (ECLN), in which we will:

– Identify the current qualification routes across Europe that are relevant to the field of Cultural Learning;
– Review the occupational roles performed by Europe’s Cultural Learning Practitioners;
– Develop new professional qualifications for Cultural Learning professionals;
– Create a new web-based Observatory to share information, practice, research, and expertise across the sector;
– Establish a new European Association of Cultural Learning (EACL).

The Network project has 12 founding partners from 11 countries (together with a further 20 associate partners, bringing 3 additional countries) and includes:

Collage Arts, UK (lead) | Rinova, UK | Associazione Culturale Mulab, Italy | CEPS, Spain | VIA-UC, Denmark | New Arts,Netherlands | Dimitra, Greece | Kau Academy, Estonia | Fundacja Arteria, Poland | Association Prostor Plus, Croatia | MITRA, Slovenia | Hope for Children, Cyprus

Below are links to the ECLN Research Toolkit that was developed in June 2013 by the project and is being tested in each partner country.
