Coop. Nazareno, based in Carpi Italy (IT), designed the POWER project and 3 partner organizations THE.AM.A based in Athens, Greece – Citadela Studio based in Prague, Czech Republic and – KCAT (Kilkenny Collective for Arts Talent) based in Kilkenny, Ireland.
The project has been approved and co-financed, within the framework of Creative Europe 2018 for 199.389,00 EUR for the duration of 24 months, commencing 01/09/2018.
The proposal has identified in performing arts, especially theatre, a universal instrument towards barrier-free communication, able to catch different target groups and to reach wide audience. In particular, POWER project aims at involving socially vulnerable people, such as disabled and migrant disabled people, in the production of a theater performance.
Scope of the project is to promote the transnational co-production of a theatre play with disabled actors and the mobility of the performance and the artists; moreover, POWER intends to enhance the skills and knowledge of those operators that usually organize artistic activities for disabled people, in order to be more trained and skilled about best practices.
The general aim is also to give visibility and resonance to the theatre performance and training that actively engage disabled people. Project results will be: new or increased audience attending the theatre performances; improved social inclusion of disabled people through artistic cooperation; improved competences of operators implementing artistic activities with disabled people; increased mobility and cooperation at the EU level.
