Growing Up in Europe

Kuukulkurit ry, the association that maintains Dance Theatre Auraco and art section Artco, is a partner organisation in a two year (2014–2016) Erasmus+ project called Growing Up in Europe. The project has 12 partners from four European countries. Its aim is to get to know the childrens’ day care systems and the education of early childhood professionals in different countries, and create innovative working methods for professional education and training.

As part of the project, Kuukulkurit organized a three day international seminar aimed for early childhood professionals and artists who work with small children. Its themes were art in early childhood structures and the Finnish educational system and culture policy. The programme consisted of presentations, discussions and workshops. See the seminar programme.

Kuukulkurit also participates in the project’s meetings and runs workshops. Other partner organisations:
