“Sensitive Pages” exhibition

Manifesto iniziativa

11 - 30th June 2013
Museo Tattile Statale Omero

Inauguration Tuesday, June 11 at 10:30.

Admission is free.

The Sensitive Pages project is a collaboration between the Museo Omero and the City of Ancona (Educational and Social Policies - Disability Unit) and with the Heads of the residential and day-care social/educational facilities, and the Home educational assistance Service.

Our aim in making this exhibition an integral part of the Arteinsieme Biennale, was to offer new opportunities for expression and socialisation through the language of art to the users of the day and residential social/educational rehabilitation centres and some users of the home educational assistance service.

The workshop activities are organised by staff from the Museo Omero. Each centre can take part in six meetings which will be held once a week.

Each workshop, created along specific pedagogical guidelines, deals with one of the five themes chosen from those closest to the participants' experience (the seasons, the sea, taste, music and best memories).
The participants can rework their chosen theme in serenity starting from their personal experience, drawing on the treasure chest of their memories, giving free rein to their imagination, desires, aspirations.
This activity, which is both introspective and cathartic, is made tangible through the creation of very personal multi-sensory books, whose pages (one for each topic) are made up of materials, objects and words chosen on the basis of the visitor's sensations and feelings at the time.
Pages that contain and express their authors' dreams, memories and inner being, pages that share glimpses of lives, pages that generate emotion, pages ... that are sensitive.
