New kind of boundary breaking library culture

In 2015-2016, the Turku City Library coordinated a project called ”CreaDream Forum in Library”. The project was implemented in cooperation with the Tallinn Central Library, Valmiera Library and Turku Women's Centre Association. The project aimed to develop effective practices to promote help for informal educators to increase their competence of supporting people when learning the key skills of modern society. During the project partners developed, tested and analyzed a variety of support activities to this purpose. The main focus in action was to support the building of motivation.

The new project “CreaTeams in Library” with more partners will start in September 2017. The experiences of the cooperation has been gathered to the website:
