Objectives and target group

Main objectives of RADart project

With the general objective of improving competences of youth workers by developing tools for them to engage with young people at risk of radicalization, RadArt specific objectives are:

  • To develop accessible and innovative methodologies and promote collaboration among organisations in order to improve competences (e.g. understanding, safeguarding, engagement) of youth workers through capacity-building activities.
  • To raise awareness of the impact of art on young people at risk of radicalization.
  • To improve critical thinking skills of young people by involving them in a research and by using art.
  • To raise awareness of the risks of extremism and radicalisation among family members and communities through accessible guidelines.

Measuring achievements

We will measure the achievement of these objectives using both qualitative and quantitative methods (evaluation forms, individual and group assessments, online survey) with target groups and stakeholders throughout the whole project in order to measure perception, believes and skills achieved.

We will also measure the number of people reached on project website with viewing, downloads and social sharing.
