CAREM-alla-Conferenza-internazionale-ICERI-2014From the 17th to the 19th of November 2014 the Centre for Creative Development “Danilo Dolci” participated at the ICERI international conference (International Conference on Education, Research and Innovation) which took place in Seville (Spain) in the splendid Barcelò Conference Centre. The CSC presented CAREM project on Tuesday, November 18 at 11:30 am in the Espana 4 Hall with a presentation by the project manager, Dario Ferrante, entitled “CAREM – Collaborative Art-making for Reducing marginalization Project”. Dario Ferrante’s oral presentation was inserted in the session “Cultural diversity and inclusive learning”. The ICERI conference was a good opportunity to disseminate the CAREM project since the abstract and the paper on CAREM were published in official documents and the conference was attended by about 600 delegates from over 75 countries. This multicultural forum gave us the opportunity to meet old and new colleagues, learn from each other and “be part of the change in education”. This 7th edition welcomed many ideas and thoughts on the world of education and new technologies that are changing the way of teaching around the world. The ICERI conference was also a great opportunity to network with leading universities and higher education institutions from many countries. CSC had the chance to take many contacts, especially with universities in South America and South Africa. In particular, we have made contacts with universities in Brazil, Colombia, Mexico. The project is a Comenius Multilateral CAREM which aims to develop and disseminate good teaching practices based on the use of collaborative art-making to promote intercultural education, reduce social exclusion and promote European citizenship within school contexts.
