ArtAgents mission is to initiate and organize art projects together with excluded and vulnerable groups in Balkan and Sweden. ArtAgent focuses on participatory art projects at schools, orphan-houses prisons, elder cares, hospitals and at residential areas in segregated municipalities. Art can be extended to the invisible materials used by everyone, the invisible materials of speech, thought and discussion in order to shape our society.
From the ArtAgent members long experience in the field they have identified positive outcomes from participation in the arts in Sweden and Europe. ArtAgent promotes the value of arts activity as being both intrinsic and instrumental, with the intrinsic being personal and individual, and the instrumental delivering a broad realm of benefits to society and civil life.
