Pilot projects and international meeting with safety distance

Rules of hygiene practices, physical distancing and wearing face masks: International meeting and theater premieres within the Erasmus+ project ArtE - The Art of Employability took place in Florence under special conditions.

The Art of Employability Meeting Florence

How does the international project work actually go on during the Corona pandemic? The past weeks in the Erasmus+ project ArtE - The Art of Employability can provide a small insight. Our national pilot projects in each of the participating countries Italy, Portugal, Spain and Germany are the heart of the project. In those pilot projects, young unemployed people work on a play over several weeks and at the same time receive job coaching tailored to their needs. After the premiere of the play, they can start a new job, an internship or training (for more details about the JobAct method please use this link).

Although internal work meetings in the last few months could be implemented well through virtual solutions, the international "real" meetings around our pilot projects are once again something very special. Representatives of all partner organizations meet to work on project topics and to watch the theater performance of a pilot project.

With the luck to have caught a suitable time window during the pandemic, two such premieres could take place in Witten and Florence at the end of September and beginning of October. The sfs researcher Christine Best travelled to both of them in accordance with the usual safety rules. With individual seats, a lot of distance and a masked audience in the theater hall, the participants could perform what they had learned in the weeks before (see also the ARTE blog of our participants). The premiere in Italy was combined with an international project meeting which fortunately could also take place in reality under favorable spatial conditions. While such a scenario seems almost unthinkable today - four weeks later - it can be said that ArtE had good timing and luck to be able to use the limited possibilities of real meetings in late summer before the project work had to switch back to digital.
