Making Space 365 Framework for Social, Civic & Community Education and Engagement
The Making Space 365 Framework for Social, Civic & Community Education and Engagement will be addressed to youth leaders, youth and community organisations and local stakeholders and will offer a methodology for undertaking Cultural and Creative Arts Entrepreneurship Education. The framework will consider the challenges in the field of social, civic and community education and engagement, and the needs of the target groups. It will assist youth leaders and community educators in identifying existing models of best practice for
the development of cultural and creative arts entrepreneurship skills of young people and community members within the context of social and civic engagement; identifying assessment tools and offering training practices most appropriate for community settings. In that sense, the framework will aim to support and complement existing knowledge and activities of youth and community organisations with new approaches and measures for successful social, civic and community education. It will also be helpful in laying down benchmarks for social and civic engagement in line with best international practice.

The Making Space 365 consortium will provide a compendium of modular, active learning and self-directed learning resources to support youth leaders and educators to develop the entrepreneurial and creative skills of young people in the communities where partners are located.
