Supported by the Croatian Ministry of Science and Education: The programme for non-formal education and training
In partnership with:

School of Fine Arts, Split

Music Association "P.I. Čajkovski", Dugopolje
The project "Peripheral network" is intended to encourage and develop creativity among children and young people who are concentrated on the outskirts of Split and thus less exposed to the impact of cultural institutions. The aim of the project is to enable this specific group of participants, through non-institutional educational programs, to develop creativity and social skills and actively participate in cultural life.
In the scope of the project, CHC contributed to art workshops for children, exhibitions and gatherings, organization and preparation of communication materials and educational lectures for high school students including introduction to cultural management and cultural policies.
The aim of the workshops was to encourage students to reflect on their role in shaping the cultural life of the city, fostering critical thinking and creativity, formation and expression of their own opinion; thinking about their own profession and possibilities for further work by reflecting on their role in the society. Using the methodology of participatory leadership, by working in groups with open discussion and free exchange of the ideas, students had an opportunity to create and think “out of the box” in a non-formal setting, by gaining soft skills and leadership skills.
We also organized a summer school for high school students in four sessions from June 30th to July 10th 2018 in the Gallery Studio -21-. The aim of the summer school was to encourage creative thinking, co-creation and active participation in the community through a series of workshops on creative expression, observation, writing, movement and storytelling.
