ERASMUS+ 2021 Has Ended
The Erasmus Project Has Now Ended
The Erasmus project comes to an end on 30th September. We were able to resume the schools project in October 2021 starting with Parkwood Primary School (Hackney), Pakeman Primary (Islington) and Rokesley Primary (Haringey) , followed by IAMS (Islington ) and Highgate Wood (Haringey).
We were able to resume the Transnational Project Partners meetings this year and held the 2nd meeting of all partners in London held at Finsbury Park Trust Offices in March this year. This was the first meeting in person with all partners after the pandemic since the inaugural meeting hosted by our Spanish partner (ACCESO) held in Madrid in November 2019. The London meeting was followed by the 3rd meeting of all partners in May hosted by You in Europe (Greece) and the 4th meeting in Helsinki hosted by our Finnish partner (Learning and Integration). The 5th and final partners meeting took place in Vilnius (Lithiuania) in September hosted by our Lithuanian partner (Artscape), In addition there was an intensive workshop for four days held in Romania (hosted by Scoaa Primera EuroED) early August with three Lead partners to develop the training tool kit that will be available to schools and community organisations. The final meeting held in Vilnius early September finalised the training tool kit and was also attended by our External Evaluator David Evans.
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.
