A successful launch of the TwistedEdu project

The first TwistedEdu kick-off meeting took place in the framework of the FLUID festival in Cetinje, Montenegro. The meeting discussed the project’s activities in the coming period and the tasks of the individual partners.

After several preparatory video meetings and online correspondence, the consortium of the TwistedEdu project (full title: Twisted Tales Educational Toolkit for Parent Tutoring and Intergenerational Learning), funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union, met in person on Sunday, 29 May. The meeting, which took place at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Cetinje, Montenegro, sparked a rewarding conversation among the gathered partners for the further development of the project activities.

Following individual presentations on the work of each partner organization, the first part of the meeting focused on activities and tasks related to project management, reporting, quality assurance and project sustainability. The second part of the meeting was dedicated to discussing the objectives and participatory approach of the project, as well as detailed planning of the needs analysis of the end-user groups (IO1) and the reinterpretation, digitisation and localisation of well-known tales (IO2).

The meeting was attended by the lead partner Institute for Transmedia Design (Slovenia), Shadow Casters (Croatia), Grupa Hajde Da (Serbia), FLUX (Montenegro), RIS Rakičan (Slovenia) and ZDUS (Slovenia).

TwistedEdu is an educational project whose overall goal is to contribute to non-formal and informal adult learning with a creative and cultural component to help younger generations in improving their creativity and empathy for vulnerable groups. By developing tools that foster innovative approaches to participation and intercultural dialogue in local languages, the project aims to contribute to the development of digital competencies and skills of adults while also promoting the social inclusion of vulnerable groups.

TwistedEdu is funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union.
