Objectives

The “Art Education Expansion Project” is part of a three-year strategic, methodological and educational plan (2019-2021) designed by TEGV to ensure sustainability to both educational programs (The Dreams Wanderer and The Dreams Workshop) and to replicate them nationwide so as to make art education a key component of the Turkish School System and to develop innovative and interdisciplinary educational models.

Beneficiaries

  • 1’500 children (6-14), who will participate to the art-education workshops delivered by the Firefly Mobile Unit;
  • Approximately 10’000 children (6-14) who will participate to the art-education workshops, part of The Dreams Workshop program;
  • 45 new trainers, who will be trained to implement The Dreams Workshop program;
  • Approximately 780 new volunteers, who will be trained to teach the two art-education programs.

Activities

In 2020 TEGV, with Alta Mane support, foresees to organize 2 art-education workshops (The Dreams Wanderer), delivered by the Firefly Mobile Unit and in collaboration with several primary and secondary schools in Elazig, in the Eastern Anatolian Region, severely struck by a strong earthquake on January 24, 2020, and 3 locations in the South of the country (Hatay, Gaziantep or Şanlıurfa), while training 30 new volunteers to implement the program. In the meantime, the organization foresees to replicate the second art-education module of The Dreams Workshop program – the contents of which were designed and successfully piloted in 2019 in 5 educational fixed units with Alta Mane support – in all the 48 educational fixed units across the country, as well as to train 45 new trainers and 750 new volunteers, and to implement the new M&E methodology to capture the quanti-qualitative impact of the program on the beneficiaries.

Partner

Educational Volunteers Foundation of Turkey (TEGV) was established in 1995, in Turkey, to help compensate for the shortcomings of the Turkish school system in the belief that the country’s problems could only be solved by tackling education first. TEGV is recognized at all levels of the Turkish society for its neutrality and commitment to education, even during emergencies.

Information

Alta Mane supports TEGV since 2015.
