Commpact: Grundtvig PartnershipPosted: December 14, 2011
Commpact received 2011 Grundtvig Partnership funding for their International Language of Folkloric Dances, INTLANFOLDAN, project. They are one of the five partners involved in this project, the lead partner, based in Tarus, Turkey, is co-ordinating the other partners based in Poland, Italy, Lithuania and the UK.
As the UK partner, Commpact, will present best practice in motivating disadvantaged immigrants who are experiencing cultural, linguistic and economic barriers and who wish to get back into education. Their skills, and those of their partners, will help the project to encourage social and cultural development throughout the partner countries using the medium of dance.
