Taking dance and movement as a creation element, these workshops invites people with functional diversity (physically disabled), non-professional, with and without dancing experience to create from the difference, to be surprised at the singularity of the other one, to reinvent our way of being in the world, to create our relationships. That’s why we incorporate dance professionals with or without disabilities into our workshops.
Dance expresses and communicates through the movement. Dance is broadened with new movements when our body explains different stories in different creation fields, with different capacities: we find a communication language from the possibilities offered by the diversity of their body, mind, culture and experience.

We all learn from all. Continue reading

The Centre doesn’t have a specific program about accessibility, after discovering the MOMA program; we have decided to dedicate the effort in this collective. Alzheimer’s is the most common form of senile dementia in Europe.
In the conference I want to explain two accessibility projects of the Maritime Museum:
The first is a project about sea food cooking that we are doing with women of different cultures that are living in the Raval quarter, that have two important goals: Continue reading

Museum, a place for all is a programm for museum non-users or for all those people who can’t visit on their own.
