Art’n’Play is our programme for cultural education in schools, aiming to equip young people with cultural competences, creativity, creative thinking and life skills.
With ten schools in Cluj-Napoca already active in the programme and five others in the metropolitan area ready to join, Art’n’Play establishes a network of schools where art and creativity are offered as resources for children’s social and cognitive development.

The Art’n’Play schools host an artist-inresidence who works with students, teachers and the community around the school to develop artistic projects meant to encourage innovation in the learning environment. Teachers and school managers are trained in the UNESCO-awarded Pre-texts methodology, so they can embed arts and culture in the generalist curriculum.
