Three projects supported by Portugal Social Innovation are inaugurated next Tuesday, June 25, at 2:30 p.m., in the Convento Espírito Santo, in Loulé.
The inaugurated projects will be Casulo – Incubator of Social Innovation Loulé and Algarve, Café Interior and Iluminarte, in an event that will count on the presence of Maria do Céu Albuquerque, Secretary of State for Regional Development.
The Casulo is an incubator of social innovation that consists in the activation of a social innovation ecosystem at the regional scale, promoting the incubation of ideas and projects that promote social inclusion, territorial cohesion, young entrepreneurship and the social sustainability of the Algarve region.
The Café Interior is an itinerant therapeutic coffee, an innovative social response to a social problem in the rural area of the municipality of Loulé: the isolation and loneliness of the aging population.
This initiative will be a mobile resource, made up of a multidisciplinary team that will work in the areas of cognitive stimulation, inclusion through art and sharing of traditions.
The IluminArte Academy is an artistic space of non-formal education and valorization of practical intelligence, oriented to professional success, reduction of risk behaviors, self-discovery and personal appreciation of those who attend it.
It is a project dedicated to art and social action aimed at empowering young people with technical and social tools that allow them to find and / or create their place, totally included in the community, with a view to a better future.
