The Culture of Sustainability in Timișoara Schools

The project aims to stimulate cooperation between artists, designers, Art students and teachers for the development of a culture of sustainability in schools in Timișoara. Artistic projects can help raise public awareness (students, teachers, parents) and stimulate the motivation needed to support the development of responsible behaviors, and collaboration facilitates artists' knowledge of current social issues and represents a premise for their involvement in social art.

Through the educational program, the project addresses both schools and teachers with whom CRIES has collaborated in previous programs (for social behavior education and actions already launched in the school), as well as schools with whom CRIES has had sequential collaborations. Also, CRIES is considering collaboration with local partners, but also national organizations, which will support in the identification of cultural projects and the artists who will be involved in the project. The project starts from the premise that, for a society to be more sustainable, a change in the cultural model is necessary, requiring a close collaboration between the school and the cultural sector.

This project is part of the national cultural programme "Timișoara European Capital of Culture in the year 2023" and is financed by the Power Station+ program | Creative schools, run by the Center for Projects Timișoara, with amounts allocated from the state budget, through the budget of the Ministry of Culture.
