Creative literacy as a way for multiliteracy

Turku City Library is a place of knowledge, creativity, enjoyment and civic activity. The library is also an equal and open environment for learning and a meeting place for the community. One of the library’s key functions is to support the increase of the literacy skills and develop an enthusiasm for reading for everyone including immigrants. Turku City Library and Turku Women´s Centre cooperate in supporting Finnish language learning and literacy skills by applying various creative methods through collaboration between the EU Lifelong Learning Program’s Finnish office CIMO (Centre for International Mobility) and the Turku City Library to provide a Grundtvig workshop titled Creative Literacy. The aims of the workshop are to inspire international cooperation and interaction, and to develop the participants’ literacy and professional skills. The workshop is due to run in early June 2014. This paper will discuss the content and present the methods to be used in the workshop.
