Project description:

The project responds to the inadequate implementation of Article 30.2. of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, which guarantees persons with disabilities the opportunity to develop and utilize their creative, artistic and intellectual potential, not only for their own benefit, but also for the enrichment of society. In the Czech Republic, this provision is clearly not being met. Artists with learning disabilities are supported insufficiently and their works are practically not presented in regular galleries.

The project objectives are:

  • To support the production of art by artists with learning disabilities or autistic spectrum disorders. For this purpose we will create a shared studio with qualified staff. Here the artists will have the possibility to work in traditional disciplines like painting and drawing, but also with multimedia techniques.
  • To present these artists on line, in publications and in regular exhibition spaces and galleries. Some exhibitions will have accompanying programs that will focus on topics like human rights and destigmatization of people with learning disabilities.
  • To support collaboration of artists with learning disabilities and artists without a disability. The project will include inclusive art workshops connecting artists with disabilities, artists without a disability and the general public. There will be also cooperation on multimedia projects.
  • To create a methodological manual for the support of artists with disabilities. For this purpose there will be a mutual exchange of know-how and experience with our Icelandic partner Art Without Borders and other Icelandic organizations working with artists with learning disabilities.
