Art-Based Training Methods
for empowering adults in the Digital Era  

The project "ATMEADE" has set itself the goal of developing a methodology that helps adults through art-based processes to sensitize themselves to issues that are not easily understood through purely rational argumentation. The foundation of the project is to sensitize for the "social" and to strengthen values like mutual understanding, tolerance and respect for integration and diversity. Based on scientific texts from sociology, philosophy and psychology, we are developing a movement vocabulary that can be used universally and that meets different requirements as a modular system.

We want to give teachers in adult education, even those with fewer possibilities, alternative tools with which they can implement their activities digitally and virtually, even in times of "non-mobility". To achieve these goals, a consortium of five organizations has been formed:

Cultural organizations
- bridgeworks e.V. (Germany)
- zakk – Zentrum für Aktion, Kultur und Kommunikation   (Germany)
- Echodrama Cultural Group (Greece)
- ACT'DEM (France)

Technological organizations
- Technical University of Athens (Greece)

ATMEADE will thus respond to the digital transformation needs of the four cultural organizations by developing online/distance learning tools with innovative digital approaches. Together with the technology department of NTUA (National Technical University of Athens), which specializes in digitization, modeling and graphic presentations of moving images, we are currently researching the methodology and will present the project results in multiplier events in France, Greece and Germany, thus making them accessible to a wide audience.
