Art and Citizenship Laboratory (LAC)

The project proposes the development of spaces for artistic creation and civic participation aimed at young people that live in compliance with the measures of law, educational mentoring, and prison protection. We especially address youngsters that demonstrate failure profiles and school dropout, by promoting the activation of social and personal skills for their inclusion and employability.

The project proposes the development of spaces for artistic creation and civic participation aimed at young people that live in compliance with the measures of law, educational mentoring, and prison protection. We especially address youngsters that demonstrate failure profiles and school dropout, by promoting the activation of social and personal skills for their inclusion and employability.

The main objective is to certify young people through participation in artistic workshops (theater, music, fine arts...) and through attending different thematic seminars, in an innovative methodological approach, developed in partnership with the Faculty of Psychology and Educational Sciences of the University of Porto.
