Sillat (Bridges) project, 2018-2020

How to build bridges between people using the STEAM approach? How to contribute to language learning? How to support integration into society? How to learn from each other?

“Sillat” is the Finnish word for “Bridges”. Sillat was realized by Experience Workshop in collaboration with Jyvälä Settlement in Jyväskylä between September 2018 and June 2020.The project had three levels:

  1. Weekly “learning by doing” workshops with people of diverse cultural backgrounds. Members of the group shared their skills and knowledge with others, got acquainted with STEAM tools, played music, while also learning Finnish at the same time.
  2. Participation at local festivals and events with „Sillat” workshops. 
  3. Free STEAM training for teachers, community and social workers
