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