B.I.S. Beauty Is Subjective

Erasmus+ project

B.I.S. (Beauty Is Subjective) project, lasting 24 months (2017-2019), has been based on collaboration between three state high schools: IES URBI BHI (coordinator, Basauri / Spain), Liceo Classico Statale Tito Livio (Milano / Italy) and Athena Campus Pottelberg (Kortrijk / Belgium) which deal mainly with a pedagogical context of multilingualism, inclusion and prevention of aesthetic discrimination. One of the main objectives of B.I.S. project is the fact that students acquire English academic language skills mainly related to History of Art and Classics to B2 level, as well as linguistic competences in real-life situations by means of working collaboratively and interacting socially with foreign partners. Another major objective has been to develop artistic sensitivity and aesthetic sense in order to give a critical point of view about the variations suffered throughout history by fashion and beauty canons, which has enabled students to become aware that the concept of beauty is changeable and subjective. Other very important objectives have been those related to improving the ICT skills, multilingual and intercultural competences through interaction with foreign partners and the use of e-ELP (Electronic European Language Portfolio).
