HERNANDEZ-HERNANDEZ, Fernando  e  BERTONI, Carmela Márquez. Creative Connections: Building an international art education project based on participatory action research. Rev. Lusófona de Educação [online]. 2014, n.26, pp.45-62. ISSN 1645-7250.

Creative Connections is a three-year collaborative research project involving six universities and 24 primary and secondary schools that began in January 2012, and funded by the European Commission under the Comenius program (EACEA-517844).Creative Connections aims to explore ways of increasing transnational understanding in Europe’s young people and children. In this innovative project six partner countries (England, Czech Republic, Ireland, Portugal, Finland and Catalonia -Spain) will work together to give a new emphasis to the ‘voice of the child’ through art, citizenship and digital media. Creative Connections builds on the previously Comenius-Funded Images and Identity: Improving Citizenship through Digital Art project that evolved new resources for teaching and learning about European Citizenship Identity.Creative Connections will develop the use of an online art gallery, the Connected Gallery, which includes a multilingual facility that will offer pupils from the European partners an opportunity to communicate through both, visual and text-based multilingual voices. We will be experimenting with the use of online translation software to help pupils communicate ideas to one another in their own languages. The consortium will work with teachers to provide an active inter-country dialogue, specifically between pupils of primary and secondary age, with a focus on enhancing an understanding of related and diverse perspectives of European citizenship (social justice, democracy and cultural differences). The project will conclude with a series of conferences in each of the six countries. All materials will be available on a website catalogue along with guidelines for developing further this type of work.In this paper, some key aspects that define the project are explored: the issue of voice, the role of collaborative action research, the meaning of visual arts education and teachers’ educational process to develop the project. All of them, from the perspective of researchers and educators who carry out Creative Connections in Catalonia.
