Mentally disabled people experience happiness and sadness the same way we do. Their perception of the world is different. And that is what we want to present through photographs and short videos which they will be taking in their homes. The purpose also is for our mentally disabled friends to enjoy themselves whilst taking these photographs together with their families.
An expert committee under the direction of Jindřich Štreit will select the best pictures. They will then be displayed alongside photographs from this world-renowned author in a touring exhibition.
The whole project is being documented and in the end a short film will be created, composed of our videos and shots made by the participating authors in their homes. Part of this project is also producing a high quality catalogue.
Professional guarantor and a close collaborator is Jindřich Štreit, patron of the project is actor Jan Budař.
We would like to obtain financial support for:
- Large format photoprints
- Graphic design and printing of catalogues
- Recording and processing videos, making them into the final documentary
- Exhibition opening night where the accomplishments of the whole project will be presented
The whole project is under patronage of Lužánky Leisure Centre, Brno.
The project is being financially supported by Ministry of Culture and is endorsed by the mayor of the burgh of Brno, JUDr. Markéta Vaňková.
Project participants are clients of the Day Care Social Centre Gaudium in Brno.
