The project mainstreaming works along strategic lines of activities. One of those is to provide a long-term vision on the contribution of arts integration to equity in education and for transforming education in line with the needs of the future European knowledge society, and to structure it along possible scenarios for change.

Based on the situation in the partner countries and regions, as identified during the Mapping Exercise and on the experience of the partners experts in arts integration and school education equity, an Innovative Educational Training will be elaborated, especially fitted for the defined target groups.

Objective of the ToT is the development of the didactic structure of the art laboratories, which are able to meet the needs and the requirements arose in the mapping exercise and in compliance with the integrated pedagogical method, as well as to set up a replicable training course based on the methodology developed by the partnership and test/improve the methodology by a piloting phase in selected elementary schools in four Member States (Italy, Spain, Belgium and Germany).

 Through the MUS-E network 450 schools will be informed about the developed method in 4 countries. In Belgium, Germany, Italy and Spain there will be an in depth piloting of the approach. The countries and the schools have been chosen through an open call addressed to 450 MUS-E schools present in 12 countries on the basis of the minorities’ representation.

Evaluation of the results is key in META since we would like to scientifically demonstrate the initial hipothesis that arts are a tool of inclusion for all children, in particular belonging to minorities groups, in all EU countries.

The project mainstreaming works along some strategic lines of activities.
