TUA: The Unexpected Artepreneur
TUA aims to create a more inclusive society for marginalised young people around Europe with Autism Spectrum Disorder and Down’s Syndrome by facilitating their self-expression through creative means and capacity. The purpose is to effect change regarding the social issues that affect them as individuals and the communities they represent.
The project aims to incorporate the power of visual art into creative environments that foster equity and equality for the inclusion of marginalised young people in education.
More specifically, the project aims to:
- Promote social inclusion and improve outreach of marginalised youth.
- Develop inclusive learning environments and curricula that foster equity, equality and respect.
- Increase the quality, innovation and recognition of work produced by young people with DS/ASD.
- Promote active citizenship among young people with mental disabilities and strengthen their sense of initiative in the regions they inhabit and broader contexts.
