A OVERVIEW OF PAST AND COMING ACTIVITIES
 

5Hoek for Newcomers spring 2021

5hoek for Newcomers is a unique intergenerational project. It is a challenging form of "Digital Storytelling" in which pupils of the OKAN* school Institute Anneessens Funck (IAF) are stimulated to meet residents of care centres via interview techniques (audio and image).  The interviews will be premiered during a festivity in the care centre in the presence of residents and creators. This is an event that focuses on the feeling of solidarity and mutual understanding.
Contacts with candidate care centres are facilitated by the IAF's learning and working centre.
* OKAN stands for Reception Class for Foreign Language Newcomers. It is a school specifically aimed at 12-plussers who have recently arrived in Belgium and who do not - or insufficiently - master the Dutch language to enter regular education.

SKILLSLAB/digital storytelling for refugees summer 2020

SkillsLab is a project that aims to offer newcomers and unaccompanied minor refugees a solid step towards digital literacy. SkillsLab's workshops are at the heart of the project and should provide participants with a basis for their further school and professional careers. Finally, with SkillsLab we want to lead participants to technical and scientific directions and make technical professions more attractive. We are convinced that, in the light of technological progress, people with a STEM profile and the desire for lifelong learning can make a difference in the labour market.

D-Art - Digital Art  2019/20

D-Art (Digital Art) focuses on learning youngsters to process all kinds of data into an artistic work (coding). This data is captured in their living environment with self-designed devices and / or supplied by (government) services of all kinds.
By coding these data, they appear in a work of art, in the form of colorful lines, light objects, soundscapes, 3D models ....With this method young people better understand the relevance of coding.

The works can be admired in the participating school Sint Lucas Brussels from March 18th until the 25th of March 2020.
