ENTER Project Training

As part of the Erasmus+ ENTER Enterprise in Interface, Creative Spark will be pilot testing a training course (curriculum and content) at Creative Spark.

If you think you would like to be considered for the training pilot test register your interest by email to hello@creativespark.ie

Interface areas, where conflict is a present threat, are increasingly common across European cities and urban areas. The conflicts are generally religious, ethnic or politically motivated and result in an increase in economic and social disadvantage for the people living in these interface areas.

The ENTER Project has been designed to counteract some of these problems by pioneering a toolkit to contribute to greater social inclusion and cohesion. This innovative toolkit will focus on the role of enterprise education and support to transform individual and community wellbeing in these interface areas.
