Magic of the frame

Three-year project on the impact of documentary films on young people’s worldview. Target group 14-19 year olds.

At a time when many people and especially young people live in their own “bubble” they are looking for “tools” to learn to look critically and empathically.
-Develop methodology and “open course toolkit” to be used by everyone.
Research on impact and describe attitude change.
Involve young people actively


Kick off ART OF FREEDOM project

Another exiting project kicking off. In the project “ART OF FREEDOM” we will work with partners from the UK, Hungary, Spain and Poland. The lead partner is the Croatian Association of Artists. Several artist who are represented in this group, have been making several murals in prisons and hospitals in Croatia. Together with them we will be working on two books on art, art education and art therapy in prisons in the next two years. We are really looking forward to this project. Unfortunately, like so many other meetings, this meeting to was online.


We are really proud on this one. The boardgame that Ed Santman has developed and designed for “Stichting Levvel” has finally arrived. This boardgame is meant to be a tool for young people to help them to arrange their finances and to be better prepared to arrange their own lives.

Art of freedom

Produce and publish two educational books (manuals) explaining and displaying different aspects of artwork in the prison. 
Artists involved in working in prisons need to go through proper education:  
– a different approach to work, 
-a different approach to the people they will encounter. 
Promote education in prisons, search for professional associates, the exchange of knowledge and the dissemination of good practice have been implemented in the European area for a long time. The transnational implementation of the project will use the specific knowledge and expertise off each partner.By educating the prison system’s expert staff about artistic activities, part of the scientific field of medicine and  psychology, it is one of the important lifelong literacy processes.
