On the two Erasmus + projects that we are currently implementing, the International Arts centre has partnered with a non-profit organisation UThrive, from Belgium.
Aida and Tatiana from UThrive are bringing expertise in emotional intelligence and debate/persuasion skills to the projects.
Paired up with Andreana's passion for civic engagement and democracy and Romana's knowledge of drama and improvisation techniques, their work on iACT and iContribute projects promises to be very exciting and rewarding for the whole team as well as for all of our participants.
