- Inviting and organising an international retrospective exhibition of recognized foreign and domestic creators or groups (Tim Burton exhibition, David Cronenberg, Pixar).
- Mapping mental health issues in the Czech Republic and the European context, creates destigmatization activities and other types of support for the inclusion of people with experience of mental illness in everyday life, in cooperation with leading Czech and foreign experts (project Parallel Lives) . He is one of the founders of the open initiative of organizations and individuals from Prague “Prague mental“, which is linked by common goals in the field of mental health.
The activities of the EYE raise awareness of social excluded people problem´s and involve them in the cultural and social life of the capital city of Prague. Under the activation programmes, the target group of the project prepares and provides an interactive destigmatisation programme of the mobile cultural centre. The project runs from March 2019 to January 2021.
Project PARALLEL LIVES IV. aims to integration of socially excluded people (due to chronic mental diseases) to the labor market. The problem of the long-term high unemployment rate of this group (70-90%), including the consequent impacts, creates one of the main barriers to reintegration into everyday life.
SOCIAL INCLUSION THROUGHT THE ART FOR THE PEOPLE WITH MENTAL ILLNESS EXPERIENCE
PRAGUE – ATHENS – BRUSSELS
The ART4PSY project addresses the issue of social exclusion (and in most cases also a significant reduction in the standard of living) of people suffering from mental disorders.
We are an open initiative of organisations and individuals from Prague, united by common goals in the field of mental health.
Through campaigns as well as regular communication activities, we show what life with mental illness looks like, how to care for mental health, where to seek help, how to support a loved one with mental illness, etc.
