Learning Partnerships

LEARNING PARTNERSHIPS (LPs) are arranged in order to equip the sector and other key operators on how to promote integration. Learning Partnerships (LPs) are developed between cultural institutions which are advanced and less advanced in their field in terms of diversity management; between cultural institutions and non-governmental organisations rooted in migrant self-organisation; between cultural institutions and employment agencies; between cultural institutions and schools.

The Learning Partnership’s outcomes will be disseminated through European networks, participation at thematically relevant conferences and organisation of the public conference in Barcelona.

The strategy has been identification of public cultural institutions (PCIs), to which an accompanied Learning Partnership (LPs) will be offered in order to equip the sector on how to promote integration.

Four kinds of LPs are foreseen:
Between PCIs who are advanced in their field in terms of diversity management and similar institutions interested in emulating the example in order to spread good practice.

Between PCIs and non-governmental organisations rooted in migrant self-organisation which promote either artists from Third Countries resident in the EU or migrants’ cultural participation in order to bring intercultural competence into the public institutions and to enhance the involvement of the NGOs.

Between PCIs and employment agencies in order to develop strategies for the diversification of their staff.

Between PCIs and schools with high migrant population.

One partnership of each kind is envisaged for each country covered by the pilot research exercise, i.e. a total of 24 LP. The LPs will take place in form of sets of facilitated bi-lateral meetings between potential partners and culminate in a one-day sharing conference per type of potential partnerships per country.
