BASICC: Building Alternative Skills for Creativities and Commons



The Aim and description: BASICC develops skills for the organization of vacant spaces in Europe, in connection with the European ecosystem of "social and proximity economy".Project will develop pedagogical innovations: university degree sessions on vacant places and their reuse in shared spaces, a work-based learning for access to a professional title of digital mediation space managers, a university course on acquired reflexive skills and a digital narrative platform. Dissemination strategy is addressed through a protocol for designing national training courses on the management of common spaces.  Communication with the general public will happen through the production of a documentary on the skills developed by the learners. Evaluation is oriented towards policy makers, to whom project members will provide comprehensive analyses of the learning associated with occupying vacant spaces and the economic impact of the ecosystem created.
