CulTrees is an international project connecting 7 partner organisations from the international ROOTS & ROUTES network for a duration of 14 months. Using art making as an educational tool, CulTrees creates fruitful environments of non-formal adult education focusing on cultural awareness and expression (Key Competency No. 8 in the European Reference Framework – ERF).
In July 2018, all partner organisations sent delegations of artists and cultural educators to a five-day seminar in Larissa to exchange good practices using peer coaching methodology: Methods that create awareness of cultural diversity through artistic activities (performing arts, media, visual and literary arts) and that counteract prejudices and stereotypes.
CulTrees is an ERASMUS+ project (KA2 Strategic Partnership in Adult Education) and is coordinated by Synergy of Music Theatre SMouTh (Larissa/ Greece). International partners include ROOTS & ROUTES Cologne e. V. (Cologne/ Germany), Les Têtes de l’Art (Marseille / Frankreich), Kauno įvairių tautų kultūrų centras (Kaunas / Litauen), Centro di Creazione e Cultura (Florence/Italy), Stichting ROOTS & ROUTES (Rotterdam/ The Netherlands) and Subjectiv Values Foundation (Budapest / Ungarn).
