Artemisszio Foundation is a private organisation recognised as of public interest since its creation in 1989. Our mission is to help people break trough the barriers that separate cultural and social groups. This also means we encourage young people of minority or disadvantaged backgrounds to engage in social mobility and we are fighting against racism, discrimination and hate speech. All our activities are based on intercultural learning, which we consider as a tool to enlarge one’s vision, to open up to the world and to challenge ourselves to overcome our limits. We have four major centres of activities: we propose work placement, volunteering or thematic training to young people in a foreign environment; we direct programmes for migrants in order to foster their social integration; we work with schools for the promotion of intercultural pedagogy and global education. Some of the tools we use have been developed by ourselves and we have several accredited training courses for teachers, policemen, medical and social workers.
ELAN INTERCULTUREL is an association created by a group of professionals interested in the challenges of intercultural encounters and coexistence. Our association’s objective is to contribute to intercultural dialogue to a better experience of cultural diversity.
As a laboratory of intercultural methodologies élan interculturel’s mission is to promote a holistic vision of culture (psychological and socio-anthropological) and to propose innovative pedagogies to open up reflection and to develop skills and competences for intercultural dialogue. To contribute to a more intercultural society we engage in international cooperation projects whose objective is to develop new teaching methodologies that can be used in various training courses tailored to different audiences (social workers, educators, teachers, health professionals etc.). As a training organisation, we use interactive teaching methods and non-formal pedagogies (applying literature, theatre, improvisation, art) that offer creative, accessible and motivating learning experiences.
