Social inclusion and Well-being through the Arts and Interdisciplinary Practices

Strategic Partnership Research Erasmus+ Project

Social inclusion and Well-being through the Arts and Interdisciplinary Practices (SWAIP) was a project that aimed to develop potential learning and teaching approaches at masters level. It focussed on the arts  and social inclusion with young people at risk of exclusion from education and those with Alzheimer disease. The project consisted of key researchers and arts educators from a range of European institutions across the disciplines of art and music therapy, architecture and fine art. Partners brought a wealth of cultural and educational diversity. Together we shared the ambition of using the arts as a tool for health, wellbeing and social inclusivity.
