E-ARTinED (or Art in Education Online) is an EU-funded Erasmus+ Project, led by Viksjöforsbaletten, Sweden.
E-ARTinED is the successor to the ARTinED project of 2011, which introduced an innovative approach to education using the arts. Its objective is to create an online learning platform for artists and teachers to be accessed anywhere (within or outside of the classroom), with toolkits for training purposes based on the output of the earlier project, as well as on “Social Inclusion through the arts” and “Exploring nature through the arts”. The online platform is already in use for the piloting phase, providing both self-study programmes and opportunities for learners (teachers) to interact remotely with other teachers and students. We contribute to the project by offering expertise in social inclusion through art: in July 2017, we organise a residential workshop in the Belgian Ardeness for our partners (including teachers from our Swedish partner) with two MUS-E artist-experts who adapted their methodology to incorporate the natural habitat surrounding the residence.
