Anna Ochmann, the chairwoman of the ARTeria Foundation, participated in an international seminar, organised by the Foundation for the Development of the Education System, the National Agency of the Erasmus+ programme in Poland. The meeting, themed “Career Path II”, took place on November 4-6, 2020, in the online form.
The event’s subjects and goals focused on the new approach to work, education, and using internet tools, that were completely transformed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The participants tried to find answers to a series of questions, such as: what skills do we need to prepare ourselves better for the future? Can we define them yet, and how to support young people in entering the labour market? How to develop an online career path? Is it possible to plan a career, when the future is unpredictable?
Interactive sessions, during which the participants presented good practices, tools, and methods, as well as workshops with experts, allowed us to prepare recommendations on how to develop an e-career path, how to create a community of practitioners in the field of career counseling, and how to develop cooperation for future mutual teamwork activities.
The ARTeria Foundation pursues projects in international partnerships since 2012, our team actively participated in various international networks and actions. ARTeria pursues a few projects co-funded by the European Union programme Erasmus+, which primarily concentrate on the career development of artists and creators. That is why the theme of this meeting was remarkably important, specifically in the context of projects such as “Global FemArt– Supporting Female Artists and Creatives to Globalise their Business”, “Bridging the Gap: new mentoring methods for young creative entrepreneurs in Europe”, “Learn to Create – promoting Work-based Learning in Europe’s Cultural and Creative Industries” and “The Partnership for Creative Apprenticeships”.
