“Roots and Routes Follow-up” is an action-research project addressing non-formal and informal learning in artistic contexts in Europe. It explores the current status of validation of informal and non-formal learning outcomes in this field, and works on a model for the assessment of artistic skills in music, dance and media.

Methodologies include peer coaching and the use of digital portfolios for the evaluation of specifically artistic competence sets.

“Roots&Routes Follow-up” is based on a previous Leonardo da Vinci pilot project and its innovative practice, “Roots and Routes Summercourses”, and will further develop training modules, follow-up and assessment methods, necessary competencies, and certification criteria in the field of the performing arts, on transnational level. With “Roots&Routes Follow-up” we intend to adapt the outcomes of the R&R Summercourses to different socio-cultural contexts in southern and eastern Europe, and build further on the experiences and outcomes achieved.

In four countries, national training courses will take place where motivated talents will follow training modules in diverse new music and dance languages, theory and practice of the entertainment business and audio-visual media technique. The talents will also perform on national festivals and stages.

This project is co-funded by the EU programme Leonardo da Vinci.
