The Foundation Disabilited Artists, entity
was created on 24 September of 1993 by the collaboration of a Autogas
Company, today absorbed by another one.
It started working in
order to insert the artists and
people with disability as an active way of participating in the society, next to the common of the artists.
In consecuence, it was necessary as
one of the first actions, to qualify those disabilited people with
artistic aptitudes so that they could improve their potential.
Another of the actions was the realization of cultural artistic
activities to promote the new cultural actors, linking us with civil
Organizations, official Organisms, Cultural Centers, Artists, Writers
and all those related with the cultural artistic activities. By this way we
got supports of different types, for example, of the
Center of Information of the United Nations, of the National Fund of the
Arts, of the Cultural Secretary of the Nation, of the Ministerys of
Education, of the Interior, of Social Development, of the National Work,
of the Secretaries of: Culture, Education, Social Development and Employment of the Government of Buenos Aires'City; of the Buenos Aires'
Úniversity, of the Cultural Centers of Recoleta and Gral.
Saint Martin, among others, many of them by means of agreements, besides
the support of Artists of national and international recognition, of
companies, of different social sectors and the new supports of
Ernesto Sábato's godfathership, María Fux and Pérez Celis.
Then, because of the
necessities that went arising as long as our
posibilities became bigger we created a Social Area as a
complement, with wich we channel all those activities that don't frame
the Artistic Area, as well as courses and seminars for those who
in a way or
another assists and guide disabled people and their enviroment creating
present and digital courses like the disabled assistence, present as the
therapeutic compannion, and other present or digital courses and
On one hand, we give some
services by Internet that
include among other: the Newsletter Integrating, the Digital
Courses for disabilited
people and without it, like those ones who take care of them,
Juridical Advice about health and disability and general information, inside the web
sitie Integrating (interactive Portal of the
Integration), www.integrando.org.ar . At the same time, by this
web sitie we carry out an Investigation on the Social Representation of the
Disability, about Art and Disability and Accessible Tourism offering
all type of information in this area.
On the other hand, we created the web
sitie Disabilited Artists (the unique web sitie that shows all the arts
including videos), www.artistas.org.ar like
another contribution to achieve a Cultural Integration.
As corollary in our 10 years of intense
activities, we received the Venturesome Solidary Man
granted by the Social Ecumenical Forum competing with 150 ONG's and
Companies of first level and among other distinctions, we were chosen by
the Fundación Agulla & Bacchetti to create the graphic campaign
“We have enough Talent”, Argentinean Post made us
the “ Seal Postcard” for our 10º anniversary to throw it the day of
“the Performance of Effort and Glories 2003”, event that we carried out
in the Cultural Center Gral. Saint Martin.
Since 18 years of activity, we have carried out a lot of
shows, exhibitions, samples and all type of cultural artistic activities
among those are included, edition of books, videos, Christmas and
New Year cards
