Where and when
Sao Paulo, Brazil. July 2018.
Educational content area
While working with "Galera do Click", this IPP will see that art can be a powerful tool for inclusion and empowerment . Participants will learn about the art of photography, sharing this experience with people with Down Syndrome. The participants will have the opportunity to see the world through their lenses, sensibility and understand their unlimited capacity. Together, they will capture moments, people and things around São Paulo to create an exhibition of work.
The partner organization, “Galera do Click", teaches people with Down Syndrome and other disabilities to work professionally with a camera. With the motto "What is special deserves to be photographed", they give this opportunity to a group who may not otherwise receive it, whilst also empowering the individuals and challenging prejudice.
Participants should ideally:
- be able to communicate and listen to others
- be open minded
- be interested at getting to know people with down syndrome and other disabilities
- be open to learn with others
- be able to work as a team
- be open to communicate through different ways
