Presentation of the artistic production Es tiempo de amar (it’s time to love) in Spain and Italy. The show was produced during the theatre, dance and music workshops organized by the Centro Educativo y Cultural por Personas con Discapacidad Cre-Arte (educational and cultural centre for people with disabilities Cre-Arte).
- 9 youths and adults with mental, physical and sensory handicaps who are involved in Cre-Arte music, theatre and dance workshops.
- 7 professionals/directors of the centre.
For the first time in 2015, Cre-Arte presented the show Es tiempo de Amar (it’s time to love) in Europe. The show had been produced in the framework of the TrasformArte project in 2014 and it had been supported by Fondation Alta Mane in partnership with Fondazione Alta Mane Italia. It was performed in Colmenar Viejo (Spain) during the Festival Internacional Escena Mobile de Arte y Discapacidad in Sevilla and during the Festival dei Centri Educativi at the Preneste Theatre Centre in Rome (Italy). At the shows in Colmenar Viejo and Sevilla, Cre-Arte organized exhibitions of the works of art produced by the beneficiaries of the centre during the batik workshops. Finally, as part of the tour, Cre-Arte artists visited associations working with people with psychological and physical disabilities using artistic tools: Debajo del Sombrero in Madrid and ZeroFavole in Reggio Emilia.
The Centro Educativo y Cultural por Personas con Discapacidad Cre-Arte in San Carlos de Bariloche organizes painting, theatre, dance, music, batik and drawing workshops to help people with disabilities take ownership of their rights. In 2014, Fondation Alta Mane supported the monthly dance, drama, music, percussions, costumes and scenography workshops leading to the production of a play that was performed in San Carlos de Bariloche, other cities and countries. This tour allowed the youth of the Cre-Arte centre to grow artistically and recognize themselves as artists. Hence, the experience had a strong impact on the participants’ identity and dignity.
This non-profit association was founded in 1995 in San Carlos de Bariloche (Argentina) where it created an artistic and cultural space for informal education and training for youths and adults with mental, sensory and motor impairments where they can develop, through art and culture, their skills and express their potential and talent.
