The project „Creativity for RE inclusion“ started on Saturday 25th of February 2015 at the premises of the Cultural-informative Center „Budo Tomovic“ in Podgorica.

Supporting partners in the project are KIC „Budo Tomovic” as well as the Secondary Vocational and Higher Education School „Sergije Stanic”.
For these activities, funds have been provided through subgranting of RAE Council of the Camp within the project „Strengthening representation and integration of Roma, Ashkalia and Egyptians (RAE)” financed by the European Union through the EU Delegation in Montenegro.
The goal of the project is to contribute to representation and integration of RE population, through informal education of 8 RE participants and 8 of their peers of other nationalities from the local community.
The plan for the first part of the project foresees workshops for inclusive and creative practices meant for development of communication, social and artistic skills of the participants, followed by recording of interviews with the participants, in order to to provide skills for the youth to make media presentation and to get an opportunity to express their experience and points of view on the subjects of inclusion and participation of youth from the aspect of RE community in the Montenegrin society.
Workshops with renowned lecturers, through a specific program of informal learning, will be implemented in February and March 2015. The first workshop named „Identity and creativity“ was conducted by psychologist Ms Tamara Milic, on 21st February 2015. By treating the identity issues, the workshop has enabled the participants to interactively process the topics and tasks from the areas of identity, inter-culturality and creative practices. The next workshop will take place on Saturday 28th February at KIC „Budo Tomovic“.
