The first three months of 2022 were filled with an intensive pilot course, carried out by PELE as part of the RESTORE project. Throughout a great variety of sessions, every weekend a group of 24 trainees had the opportunity to develop their skills as facilitators, experimenting different artistic languages, while acquiring design and project management tools.

The second part of the course started in April, in which the trainees, divided into pairs/trios, started to work directly with 11 social institutions, in order to facilitate collective creation processes. These sessions have been including a wide variety of groups, in terms of age and social context, and they will continue until the end of June.

So far the RESTORE pilot course has been a very fruitful experience, both for PELE team, the trainees, the hosting partner institutions and, of course, the participants. We look forward to watch all these seeds growing up!
