‘Soundscape’ is a term coined by Canadian composer and theorist Raymond Murray Schafer to describe a sonic environment. The project “Soundscapes” invites pupils and teachers to explore their sonic environment, thus developing an attentiveness both to their surroundings and to themselves, as well as the ability to look at phenomena from an artistic and scientific perspective. This project is implemented as part of a larger project “Modernisation of the Cultural Education System” organised by the Martynas Mažvydas National Library of Lithuania.
The project “Stories. Through Sounds and Images” aims to encourage teachers and upper secondary students to search for and discover creative ideas and stories in their everyday life, their immediate environment, and their relationship with the local community, and to look at art as a multidimensional cultural phenomenon analysed from the perspective of various educational subjects. The cultural intervention is part of the project “Modernisation of the Cultural Education System” organised by Martynas Mažvydas National Library of Lithuania.

Young people are introduced to the processes of filmmaking and film evaluation, and encouraged to discover film as one of the means of personal expression. One of the best-known activities of the project in Lithuania is called Young Programmers. All activities offered as part of the project are free of charge, funded by the EU sub-programme Media and partly supported by the Lithuanian Council for Culture.
For the second year running, ARMR is an educational copyright programme intended for Lithuanian schools.

Within the programme, copyright specialists, the project team and teachers have collaborated to develop a set of methods for teaching about copyright.
