Being excluded from numerous social activities, such as formal learning, marginalization has become a major aspect of the COOPERATIONS ART members. The workshop aims to counteract this by providing an environment for individual development, creativity, expertise and income. The personalities of participants, their interaction and artistic productions from a process linking art with empowerment and confidence.
The artwork studio is a programme within the COOPERATIONS sheltered workshop. Supported by the Ministère du Travail in Luxembourg, it provides people with learning difficulties work and income. All the members of the atelier regard their daily activities as 40 hours per week jobs.
COOPERATIONS is currently developing strategies to market projects and exhibitions. The workshop earns income through sales of works and project commissions. This income is substantial but does not cover the entire cost of a permanent working structure. COOPERATIONS has acquired a wide audience through festivals, concerts, newspaper articles and television shows.
