Tungumál: EN
Document available also in: IT

Posted by EPALE Italia

This transnational essay aims to investigate the contribution of art in fostering active citizenship.

Firstly, we analysed the concepts of democracy, lifelong learning and participation, and how these topics are connected to each other within the European Union framework. Then, we had an overview on both Italian and European policies about lifelong learning and active citizenship, in order to better analyse the regional realities of Tuscany and Sardinia and the practices that are implemented in each region.

Art creates an opportunity of sharing an experience from which people can learn and become more aware of being part of a community.

Art could also represent an input that pushes people into being more active; taking care of common spaces, of a city, could foster a sense of belonging and willingness to create, alongside other citizens, something beautiful.

The single actions of individuals, put together, can make the change. 



Key Words: Active Citizenship; Lifelong Learning; Art; Adult Education
