Pro Art & Co is a non-profit organisation involved in an innovative method of education and dissemination of knowledge and personal experiences gathered through the process of non-formal learning and presentation of heritage, culture, art and traditional life of diverse communities to general public. Our target groups are adults, older and young people and children. We also work with diverse ethnic groups, refugees, migrants, artists, professionals in different fields of activities and those who are interested to improve their knowledge and personal development. Our aim is to improve their participation and motivation towards further learning and in that way to facilitate inclusion and cohesion into a mainstream society. We organise cultural events and involve our members in mobilities/travel experiences and intercultural meetings throughout Europe. The main aim is to facilitate communication, try to bridge cultural and language barriers and to create informal learning opportunities through visits to historic, heritage sites, museums, libraries and cultural institutions. We also run Pro Art members club.
