PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Afanias has a 10 year old Art and Culture Programme, recently named Experimenta.
We believe artistic practice is an essential and powerful tool, that transforms people on a personal and emotional level and enables social integration.
We see a need to create community and raise awareness of the benefits of the art practices in a society that’s overwelmed by technology.
Our challenge is to help create empathic societies that embrace differences, and make their work visible. We integrate people with and without intellectual disabilities in our activities, projects and workshops.
He have the opportunity to exchange knowledge, methodologies and approaches around the art practices and share the benefits and challenges of inclusive activities, with other experties, due to our experience.
We currently provide support to 110 students with intellectual disabilities, that participate of our workshops.
Ages, ranging from 10 to 70 years old. We invite other groups, who participate in the workshops and projects (children, youth, adults, or the elderly.)
