Artemisszió was founded in 1998 as a charitable foundation based in Budapest, Hungary. We believe in an open, tolerant society, where disadvantaged people are given opportunities and interculturality is valued. We work towards these goals in our home country and abroad as well. We believe that in this current globalised world, the understanding of deeply varied societies is a necessary skill. This is the way forward.
Our group has extended its work into two specialized directions:
* Mira: the intercultural community of Artemisszio Foundation
* Artemisszió Kompetencia Központ (Competency Center): focusing on self-discovery and skill development training.
IL SALONE DEI RIFIUTATI
Il Salone dei Rifiutati is a Social Cooperative founded in 2016, already active since 2008 as a self-managed creative atelier.
Il Salone dei Rifiutati is a craft and creative workshop where initiatives and productions are carried out starting from the re-evaluation of the rejected objects and then become opportunities for work, meeting and sharing innovative experiences.
The cooperative works in agreement with local companies that confer production waste, then converted by the operators as material for educational activities, exhibitions, workshops and training courses in synergy with artists, creatives, public and private realities, building an important opportunity to create courses for teachers of all schools and for social and cultural operators.
Il Salone dei Rifiutati realizes museum installations, interactive set-ups and activates paths of artistic residence and participatory art operations, the result of comparisons and collective reflections involving citizens of all ages.
The cooperative manages the MOON – Museum of Narrative Objects in Potenza.
