Art blog

Space T celebrates in 2012, 18 years of existence, always with a constant concern "Transforming Men Into Princes," or rather, look at Art and the Art, the reintegration of all as no exception.

Founded in 1994, the Space T develops its work in three distinct areas (Social, Cultural and Training) whose main objective is the integration of people with bio-psycho-social (drug addicts, mentally and physically disabled, elderly, without homelessness, HIV, etc.), between "Normal sayings" through art, to foster self-esteem and self-concept of each of these people.

In 1994, for many this was a utopian space, almost unreal, but the truth is that the Space T believe and fight for a better world, where all as we are accurate and valid, which all have potential, where there is no "poor things" and "generous", essentially believe in a world where all are complementary and mutually help each other, we believe the acceptance of difference and the Other.

Throughout this period the Space T have seen their work recognized by awards, award in 2006, the Equality is Quality Award, given by the Commission for Equality in Labor and Employment, most notably, in 2007 the appointment by the Foundation Calouste Gulbenkian International Prize for the Raymond Georis Price: The Mercator Found, the award in 2008, the 3rd. Hospital of the Future Award in the category of Social Services, in 2009 the award Prince Henry by the Brotherhood of Tripe Porto and in 2010 the award of Honorable Mention Equality is Quality, awarded by the Commission for Gender Equality.

In order to continue to develop its activities to all those who need us, are preparing the Auction "Happiness exists, help us keep it!" Which will be sold artworks of artists, among others products such as personal items of celebrities, design objects ... as a means of achieving necessary money to meet all your expenses with therapeutic activities and sociocultural.

In this sense, I decided to support the offer of three paintings, so they can be sold at auction to take place on February 19, 2012, by 16.30, the Hotel Infante Sagres in Porto, Portugal.
