Erasmus+, No more walls, just bridges – final virtual mobility

As part of the Erasmus + project, No more walls, just bridges, the last mobility was carried out in a virtual way. This mobility that should have happened in March 2020, in Geel, Belgium, was postponed for a year due to Covid19. However, and as the pandemic situation continued, the partner countries of the project decided to carry out some of the activities that were expected to be attended, in a virtual way. The theme of this mobility would be Art. Thus, on the first day, students were challenged to solve a Kahoot with questions about the artistic world of the five countries. Then, under the sub-theme, Art Alive, each working group presented recreations of works by renowned artists in their country. The artists chosen by the Portuguese students were Vhils and Henrique Pousão. There were also videos that were preparation tasks for this mobility.
On the second day, and with the subtopic Adopt the past, save the future, the monuments “adopted” in each of the countries were presented, namely: Portugal, the Castle of Campo Maior.
On the third and last day, special attention was paid to the immaterial heritage of each country. Each country presented this heritage in the most interesting way. Portugal sent paper and wire to its partners, already duly cut, to build a poppy, according to the flower technique of the people’s festivities. A tutorial was shown, gently filmed at the Campo Maior Community Center, explaining, step by step, how to build this flower.
After these three, the partners, students and teachers, said goodbye with longing and willing to roll up their sleeves and work on the next projects in which we are involved.
