ARTEM is a project that aims to promote the meeting and the mutual knowledge between local community and migrants by relying on a system of reciprocal exchanges of non-market services: to make it possible to be recognized by the other for their competences, and to learn by doing.


The project aims to develop an educational strategy to support the development of skills and competences of migrants and refugees that will facilitate their integration into the host society, integrating non-formal education tools with an empirical approach regarding the training curriculum of Adult Education Centres for migrants and / or recent refugees.


The project promotes an integrated approach that combines the non-formal education practices typical of youth work with the contribution of the Lacanian psychoanalytic practice. Both approaches support the capacity for resilience, such as the ability to effectively cope with the challenges of the exile condition of young migrants, to give new impetus to their existence and even to reach important goals. The project aims to develop, test and share a working method with those who work with young migrants who have applied for asylum in Europe, young refugees and second generations immigrants, contributing to the creation of a tool to be used for the purpose of radicalism prevention.
