Future perspectives for STEAM Education: the result of the 2 years international project and the co-designed PERSE method in action.

15th February 2023

hosted by Castello di Rivoli Museo d’Arte Contemporanea, Rivoli (Turin, IT)
thanks to the Education Department

PERSE – PERspective on Creativity and STE(A)M Educational fields, co-funded by the Erasmus+ Program of the European Union, aims at developing and formalising a creativity-oriented pedagogical approach that overcomes the dualism among ART and STEM education. The project is focused on non-formal and informal education addressed to young people (15-29 years).

Our partners, from Italy, Greece, Portugal and France, joined all together for a Multiplier Event in Turin, hosted by Castello di Rivoli Museum of Contemporary Art.

Our method has been co-designed by all partners – along 2 years – around engagement, freedom, sharing, inclusion and well-being. We believe every learning is based on a multidisciplinary approach, personal experience, the opportunity to experiment and make mistakes, self-confidence and soft skills.

That’s the reason why we combine Arts and Inquiry science based learning with the tools made available by new technologies and foster creative thinking as a tool of empowerment for local communities.

During the Multiplier Event in Turin, in the morning, we retraced the most significant steps of the PERSE project, listened to inspirational speeches and discussed how to create synergies between the cultural, creative, STEM and educational sectors with different international stakeholders.

The afternoon was dedicated to the piloting of our POP UP LABS with young people. At the same time, a session of online and offline networking involved all the organisations interested in joining our EU Hub of Ideas, an international platform conceived to match education professionals and organisations with a STEAM pedagogical approach.
