More than fifty people from the Occupational Therapy Centres of Guía de Isora, Candelaria, Arona and Adeje will attend the seventh Theatre Meeting for special needs individuals in the Adeje Cultural Centre Auditorium this Thursday, 12 June, at 6pm. The event will have participants from the following associations and centres: Orobal in Los Cristianos; Rosas del Guache in Arona; Arcoíris in Candelaria; Guía de Isora; and the Los Olivos Occupational Centre in Adeje.
This is a pioneering initiative in the Canary Islands, and has been very well received in previous years, with the public filling the theatre in the Adeje Cultural Centre every year. In this way too the public have shown their appreciation of the creative and interpretive work achieved by those who attend the occupational centres as well as that of the collectives working with them. Entry is free.
The event is organised by the Adeje department for special needs care under councillor Carmen Rosa González Cabrera, who said “it is an honour for us to be hosting this event for the seventh time, an event which is staged to emphasise the value of the creative and expressive work of the users of these centres”. The councillor added that “in previous years we have seen an excellent level of participation and we see merit in continuing with the event because it is a manifestation of the relevance placed on the expressive and creative process which persons with different abilities can achieve. The event allows them to project their artistic endeavours, and chose which theatrical work and character they wish to interpret within that framework”.
