Art education for special groups, Literary Arts and collaboration across municipal borders

The project focuses on well-being, creativity, and clarification of structures. The aim is to increase the accessibility of art education, enable the teaching of special groups, open the doors to the world of Literary Arts and develop study paths across municipal borders. Through various forms of cooperation, we also strive to expand job opportunities for art educators. Competent art educators are needed in Vaasa and by offering permanent job opportunities qualified personnel can be employed.
