The primary objective of the project Grandma’s Story is to engage and include young people of migrant or refugee background in their local community by developing skills in interpretation, heritage and media, in a setting of migration, tolerance and diversity. The secondary objective is to extend and develop youth workers’ competence for working in and with museums and galleries, heritage and community associations especially those within areas of larger ethnic minority populations.
An OER platform for the development of on-line exhibitons curated by young people and eLearning for youth workers set the project in the digital era. A methodology e-publication including guidelines, aimed at supporting cooperation between Civil Society Organizations and Youth Associations will be produced. The guidelines document will aim to transfer the methodology and resources created through the project’s Intellectual Outputs by creating a “bridge” between youth work and other sectors working at various levels with migrants.
