The project in summary
Artistic activities at the Cre-Arte Educational and Cultural Center located in San Carlos de Bariloche in Argentina in favor of people with mental, sensory and motor disorders.
The project in detail
In 2012 and 2013, Alta Mane supported different artistic laboratories of Cre-Arte (percussion, murga, dance-theatre, music, costume and set design) during which the beneficiaries worked on the creation of a real show stage presented to the public in San Carlos de Bariloche and in other cities or countries. Participation in local events and tours allows the young beneficiaries to grow artistically and to recognize themselves as “artists”, with strong identification value and dignity.
In 2014, the project included monthly dance-theatre, music and percussion, costume and set design workshops that led to the creation of a show performed in San Carlos de Bariloche among other cities and countries. The participation in local events and tours allowed youths to grow artistically and to identify themselves as “artists”, which in turn strengthened their identity and dignity.
Between 2015-2017, the project involved the realization of laboratories of plastic art, murals, batik, ceramics, design, literature, sculpture, theatre and dance and a laboratory of civic education offered to all 65 participants. During the workshops, Cre-Arte promoted ownership and empowerment of people with disabilities on their rights. The project also included the systematization of the work of Cre-Arte with a final publication, to disseminate and share with other interested organizations.
This non-profit Association was founded in 1995 in Bariloche, Argentina, where it established an artistic and cultural space for training and non-formal education of youths and adults with mental, sensory and motor disorders. Here, through art and culture, they are able to develop their skills and express their potential and hidden capacities.
