Pichón Trail Project needs your vote for art project
A non-profit association of the municipality of La Orotava is participating in a national call to develop a project to help people with multiple sclerosis through the work of emotions through art.
Pichón Trail Project needs web votes to gain a grant to develop “Art with emotions”. Voting will continue until September and Pichón is already among the 50 first organisations of the 600 that have been presented.
The scheme is being run by the pharmaceutical brand CINFA, on the occasion of its 50th anniversary, which wants to give grant aid to 50 associations and NGOs supporting all those people who live with any disease. Each winner will get 5,000 euros.
The Pichón Trail Project works, since 2014, to make visible and help people suffering from multiple sclerosis. Normally they do it through sports but they also help with the development of training, information and accompaniment projects for diagnosed patients.
“Art with emotions” is one of their ideas.
“ When a person goes through some type of conflict and cannot find the words to express it, the artistic practice becomes a tool for them,” a spokesman explained. “The project tries to work with people who have multiple sclerosis through art, providing a work space and sessions in which they can improve their quality of life, through techniques developed by professionals.”
Pichón Trail Project is asking for the collaboration of all the residents of the municipality in order to obtain one of these grants that can make a project so rewarding.
