The Association’s ethos is to promote creative processes and artistic skill with adults with learning disabilities, and therefore all projects engage adults with learning disabilities in processes that facilitate the creation of their own work and aesthetic, and empower them to take ownership of this work and process.
The association manages to address its ambitious plans thanks to the creative professionals engaged to develop projects, to our active volunteers, artists and members whose commitment and energy drives us to achieve more. Opening Doors Association exists because the members believe in cultural rights and accessibility. Together we are committed to the creative expression of people with learning disabilities.
As an arts organisation Opening Doors provides opportunities for adults (18+) with diverse intellectual needs. This is done through a Theatre group, a Dance group and a Music group who meet for classes once or twice a week. They put up performances and Open-Air Jams for the public in outdoor and indoor spaces in various localities on the Maltese islands.
Opening Doors core activities are funded by the Arts Council of Malta through the Cultural Partnerships Agreement, and Premju tal- President ghall-Kreattivita’.
