The Museum was invited to take part in the adult education project Manifesto for Inclusive Learning coordinated by the University of Florence, which aimed to support immigrants and create new pathways into a working life. The project shared best practices from the university world, vocational schools and culture. 

In addition to the University of Florence and the Helinä Rautavaara Museum, the project also involved the Pfefferwerk Foundation, the Interorthodox Centre of the Church of Greece, the Stichting hoger beroepsonderwijn Haaglanden en Rijnstreek, the CPIA La Spezia, The Mosaic Company and the Centrum Edukacyjne EST. The project received Erasmus+ funding and took place in 2018–2020.
