In the course of European history, from the Greeks to the Romans over the Middle Ages up to the modern age, there is a clear relationship between „art“ and its influence on the physical and mental well-being as well as its detectable advantages for the prevention of diseases.
For this reason, we have designed a transnational and inter-professional project on the domain of Art Therapy.
The aim of the project is to exchange good practices, establish strategic partnerships and develop innovative and effective methods for professionals in the pedagogical, therapeutic and artistic field to provoke positive change for vulnerable groups.
In line with the European strategy for 2020, we aspire to significantly improve the field of adult education in terms of quality and quantity. Our holistic approach enables professionals to continue their education and to apply innovative practices that aid individual as well as social transformation. At the same time, it offers an opportunity for art therapy in our society to provide more visibility and recognition.

Art represents an infinite space of expression, relationship, and growth, capable of breaking barriers and giving voice to unfair situations.
For this reason, we want the art and social world to have a platform for dialogue and experimentation that will grow and consolidate innovative and effective methodologies for social inclusion.
From May 17th to 19th 2019, the Second Edition of the #CreArTe #Social #Art #Festival will take place in Granada. It is a festival that aims to give visibility to different artistic practices as a tool for social inclusion.
The guests will give workshop throughout the weekend in which they will show us consolidated projects on how Art can serve the social sector.
These workshops, which will take place at the Fundación Escuela de Solidaridad are dedicated to students, artists, ONG associations, foundations, social workers and any interested person.
This year all the participants in the Festival will have the opportunity to participate in a great Street Parade that will bring together all the results of the workshops on Sunday, May 19 at 6:00 p.m. in Granada.
