A cooperation between the Bildungslabor as coordinator of the art of inclusion project with the Brandenburg Technical University Cottbus-Senftenberg (btu) made it possible to evaluate the activities of the project during the process with the help of master students. The external evaluation was financed from the Bildungslabor and the btu. A summary of interim evaluation outcomes was published on EPALE.
The workshop in Graz in December 2018 was intended to foster dialogue between young refugees from the Graz region and other local inhabitants about daily life issues. It was organized by the Austrian project partner uniT in the Theater am Lend.
In May 2019, Eco-Logic organized a workshop for refugees living in a camp near the North Macedonian/Serbian border. Being confronted with the particular difficulties of the people staying in the camp, the workshop was initially considered a failure, as many of the agreed parameters for an eye-level communication (motivation, atmosphere, transparency) could not be reached to a sufficient degree. However, in the course of the joint review process, the project participants no longer regarded this as a failed attempt, but as a stumbling block with learning potential. This challenged the project partners to be more attentive and empathetic in their future actitvities towards marginalized groups.
In November 2019, the Bulgarian partner Vox Populi hosted the project participants for a two day workshop, where elements of storytelling were combined with artistic expression through music and visual arts / collage techniques. A special highlight was an evening theatre show of a play produced by Vox Populi basing on a documentary theatre approach.

In January 2020, the project partners participated in a workshop of international students in Rennes / France to learn to play Javanese gamelan insruments and how to combine it with storytelling of migrants. The stories were taken from the Ecyclopedia of Migrants co-produced by the French partner L'Âge de la tortue. After the workshop the art of inclusion group had the opportunity to visit the cultural centre "Le Champs Libres" where the Encyclopedia of Migrants is presented for the public. Finally, a professionally trained group of students from the University Rennes II performed an evening show with storytelling and gamelan at the sold-out university theatre.
