With the Creative Change project we want to respond on the enormous challenges that the COVID 19 pandemic has posed to adult educators: how to rapidly adjust service provision to respond to learners’ new needs. Transnational collaboration in EU-funded projects, have long been a fast-track to improving and innovating education services. Our ability to identify new solutions and work with colleagues from other sectors can make the difference in bringing real change. To this end, Creative Change seeks to learn from the creative sector.

By fostering this exchange between project management, arts and culture, Creative Change creates an approach of sustainable and impact-oriented project management.


Creative Change aims to develop the skills of adult education project staff to embrace the use of

  • creative project methodologies,
  • digital tools and
  • collaborative strategies

which will help them move from narrow process-oriented work to broader people-centred, impact-oriented practices.

We will do this by…

producing three new resources that transfer creative methodologies from the cultural industries for use in adult education, enabling project staff to find creative solutions, create effective collaboration in virtual spaces and ensure sustainable change in the projects they manage:

  • IO1 The Guide to Human-Centred Design of Adult Education Programmes

  • IO2 Creativity Space

  • IO3 Guide to Creative Change Hackathons

Our project activities are aimed at adult educators and managers of EU-funded projects, as well as creative people or people who work in the arts.
