Trainer: Marco Paiva

For over 20 years, in various parts of Europe, creators and companies have involved in their performances and creative processes artists with intellectual disabilities. On what grounds do they do it? What are they looking for? To what extent have these works contributed to a real change in mentality regarding the importance of artists with intellectual disabilities, their training and integration in the arts market?

In this seminar, we will look at some paradigmatic cases and analyse what has been done and what remains to be done in Portugal  in order to bring about a systematisation of the work of these artists.
