#NarcissusMeetsPandora is an INNOVATIVE ARTS-BASED PRACTICE THAT TAKES UP DIGITAL TECHNOLOGIES AS TOOLS FOR YOUTH TO CRITICALLY AND SOCIALLY ENGAGE IN THE SOCIAL MEDIA CONTENTS PRODUCTION.
#NarcissusMeetsPandora addresses crucial concerns of today’s society related to digital competences, social inclusion and education. It faces young people’s lack of capacity to produce and analyse visual media content and lack of training on digital skills by teachers and school education plans. In a changing society, social sustainability calls for the involvement of young people in creative and dynamic learning processes, taking advantage of intercultural dialogue to value diversity and positive attitude.
The project aims to develop digital skills and social engagement in an innovative way, by providing high-quality skills for stimulating the reflection and creative expression, working directly with young people’s digital portraits, starting from an intrinsic habit to develop a critical and efficient pedagogical experience.
FIRST RESULT expected is that young people are capable of producing images that represent themselves and others through digital technologies with confidence and responsibility.
SECOND RESULT expected is that young people use social media to address social, ethnic and cultural diversity, to make a positive change for communities across Europe.
THIRD RESULT expected is that teachers and youth workers feel empowered to use digital skills as a transformation tool that provides social inclusion.
