Empatias is a project that provides innovative occupational therapy for people in Catalunya with functional diversity. The project enables users to express their creativity and skills to make and sell handicrafts (sandals, accessories) to the general public. Users benefit from the creative process and by seeing the real value that their work has for society. Individuals of all levels of ability are able to participate, and together, we all contribute to a more inclusive and diverse society.
Empatias proposes to transform the current workspace and furnish 3 studios that will provide users with more autonomy, higher self-esteem, less dependency on staff, and allow room for future growth.
