ERASMUS+ Update

Erasmus Project On Hold For Now But Hopes To Resume Soon…

Because of the pandemic, the project was put on hold. Between October 2019 and March 2020, one partners meeting was held in Madrid towards the later part of November 2019 and few workshops with Tutors took place to prepare and plan the course curriculum. Meetings also took place with participating schools. We have now resumed activities and the first schools to participate this summer term are Islington Arts and Media School (IAMS – Islington) and Rokesley Primary School (Haringey). Parkwood Primary School (Hackney) will follow this autumn. We have worked closely with our main partner Every Child an Achiever (ECAN) for the delivery of this project.

Weaving Webs of Stories Project

In the ERASMUS+ Weaving Webs of Stories project, Finsbury Park Trust are working with seven partner countries supporting young people to improve their literacy skills and develop a culture of reading for pleasure.

The project application was developed by Every Child an Achiever and submitted to the Commission in collaboration with Finsbury Park Trust, who is the lead organisation in the transnational partnership of seven European countries.

The project will work with experienced creative writers and artists in non-formal environments, developing new ways to engage children in making their own stories, art works and performances – boosting competence in reading, comprehension and creative writing.

By tapping into the richness and diversity of our multi-cultural communities, the project will also support the schools with which we work in promoting equality, challenging stereotypes and intolerance and celebrating difference.

We are grateful to the UK ERASMUS+ National Agency for granting our application.
