On February, 2019 our Estonian partner organized a workshop in Pärnu, Estonia, where youth workers from the organization talked about good practice from Tackle Hate project and the importance of delivering effective positive narratives to tackle online hate speech using also Art and Performance panel.
In fact, the arts have the potential to provide a more positive means of communication. Recent research provides evidence that people’s greater engagement with the arts often leads to greater pro-sociality through volunteering and charitable giving. Furthermore, research shows that children and young people who have been involved with arts in school become more active and engaged citizens than their less artistically involved peers when it comes to voting, volunteering, and general participation in society.
The dissemination event ended up as with a presentation of the Erasmus plus programme and information about non formal hate speech initiatives.
