The Fundació Estimia helps persons with disabilities by empowering them through art and education. We are a proud supporter of their great work in Barcelona.
For almost a year Netcentric has been supporting the Fundació Estimia, which is a school, an artist studio and a residence for persons with disabilities in Barcelona, Spain. This foundation brings specialized care to individuals of all ages that need it. This organisation is inspiring in not only how it operates and the values being their work. From facilitating artistic expression to music therapy for children with disabilities, to offering a graphic design course, the Fundació believes in empowering people to learn and connect with their communities.
The aim of the artist studio, is to enable the participants to reach a level of autonomy and social integration in their community. This program is tailored towards persons with mental disabilities, physical and genetic disorders. It gives them space to be creative, express their emotions and show their community who they are and what they can do. Some of the products they make are children’s toys and traditional Catalan Christmas decorations. These artisanal pieces are handmade and are sold at exhibitions around the city.
