From writing to screens
ERASMUS PROJECT “Reading and Writing in Europe in a Digital Context of Change”
With the advent of digital technology, our society is going through an unprecedented transformation. It is a global cultural revolution that concerns all of us and impacts all sectors of society. As a book professionals and education specialists, we hope that through reflection and conducting experiments during the course of this project, which brings together five European countries (Austria, Belgium, France, Poland and Romania), a better understanding will emerge of the challenges of the complex evolution and an analysis of new reading and writing practices.
In order to do this we have invited experts from different disciplines to several round-tables that will bring with them different Philosophical, Economic, Scientific and Pedagogical approaches; we have equally solicited artists to address these issues in a sensitive and creative way; and finally we have instigated sociological and socio-cognitive studies to study these new realities with the greatest accuracy.
We are working to achieve the following objectives:
-To innovatively address issues by finding solutions in the field which can be applied to if possible the different identified structures
-Create a synergy between the European partners in order to become a force of mutual proposals
– To experiment with various audiences, especially young people, and for high school mobility, new practices of reading and writing. Allow them to take part in the project as EU citizens.
This project is supported by the Town of Saint-Raphael (Var-France) in cooperation with four cultural associations: The Reading Centre of Styrie (Leszentrum-Austria), The House of Book in Brussels (Belgium), The Wings of Wind (French Calligraphy Association), Maltae (Photography-France), and four high schools: the Golf Hotel professional high-school (France) with the Pelplin high school (Poland), the Saint-Exupery high school (France) with the Petru Rares high school (Romania).
