Creative workshops

The program of creative workshops of the Institution is innovative and different precisely in the structure of users, in addition to people with disabilities, the participants of the workshops are also their friends, parents, grandparents. Our goal is to design a variety of cultural and educational programs that encourage creativity, lifelong learning, creative expression and the use of free time in order to improve the quality of life. The sustainability of the program is ensured by the variety of activities offered.

The work program is harmonized with the shown interest and wishes of the users / participants. In working with participants, special attention is paid to the acquisition of practical knowledge, skills to encourage and further develop the ability to judge cultural and aesthetic values. Being creative does not necessarily mean being a great artist, but expressing your desire, vision and enthusiasm in whatever way you want. The goal of our workshops is to develop the creativity of the participants, have fun and learn a lot of interesting skills. It doesn't matter how we express our creativity, it is important that we enjoy it.

In addition to theoretical and practical work, the workshop programs also include exhibitions that present the results of the program. In this way, the aspiration of a large part of the participants to make their daily lives more meaningful, complete and humane is satisfied.

Art colony

URIHO's art colony is held at the end of June, thus becoming constant for cultural events in our Institution. The goal of the colony is to gather artists to socialize and create works of art that beautify the workspace of employees and users of the institution who are extremely proud of this event and its longevity.

The colonies are done with different painting techniques in accordance with the affinity of the artist and the theme according to personal choice. The colony is held in the open, in Novi Zagreb, in the "factory" circle at URIHO's largest location. Painting in the colonies has always had a special charm, ideas and ways are questioned with colleagues. There are many individual worlds that collide and intertwine. Many well-known and recognized authors gather, but also the younger ones who are adorned with indisputable talents. In the colonies, artists of different potentials and poetics emerge from the safe oasis of their studios, moving towards a noble and humane goal. Their togetherness results in a number of impressive works.

A specific segment of the colony is the participation the most talented students of URIHO's art studio, who have the opportunity to show their creativity by creating and socializing with "great" artists, which shows the pedagogical note and value of the project itself. Through such and similar events, URIHO successfully fights against the social exclusion of people with disabilities.
