Erasmus+ Key Action 2: L-Paths
Working with international partners in Bulgaria, Croatia, Italy and Turkey we have been sharing best practice in working with underrepresented and hard to reach communities through the arts and culture, particularly traditional outdoor arts including carnival.
This EU funded 18 month programme enabled teachers and learners from each organisation to experience one another’s work and approaches to engagement and participation, through 5 shared ‘mobilities’.
The New Carnival Company shared its work in integrated carnival practice introducing VIVA Carnival Club. We hosted our own 5 day ‘mobility’, welcoming 35 international visitors, during August 2016 at Ventnor Carnival with a programme of samba drum and dance, calypso song writing, carnival costume making and even Morris dancing, in association with VIVA members and other artist leaders.

The NCC is currently planning an Erasmus+ Key Action 1: Youth Exchange programme and welcomes expressions of interest from other European partners.
