Envisioning a viable career path for every artist…

Inspired by Article 27 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, “Everyone has the right to take part freely in the cultural life of the community, [and] to enjoy the arts”, MYARTIST is a bridge between artists and society.

MYARTIST is a social cooperative enterprise, founded in 2018, specialized in the provision of services of general interest or in the reintegration, through work, coaching/counselling and mentoring services, of disadvantaged and marginalized artists (disabled, long-term unemployed, former detainees, addicts, etc.).

MYARTIST offers management, coaching, mentoring and counselling services to graduates from “arts schools”, inviting companies to “adopt” an artist and to undertake his/her operating costs (in order to create a painting, a sculpture, to organize a photographic exhibition, etc.). MYARTIST brings creative talents into contact with companies of excellence. From the synergy between the company and the artist, an unprecedented art collection is born, an exceptional and innovative testimonial of an entrepreneurial artist identity.

In that way, MYARTIST aims to engage art as an important tool for fostering dialogue among diverse peoples, cultures, and worldviews to encourage tolerance and solidarity in the defence of human rights, underlying the importance of the relationship between the artist and the most compelling issues of our time.

The Association of Educational Services “OpenEurope” is a non-for -profit organisation with the main office in Reus (Catalonia, Spain) that aims to help young people and adults who work in youth related sectors participate in European programs.

All projects and initiatives of our organisation aim to involve educators, teachers, professors, students and the whole community in carrying on projects and programs that seek a life-long learning process. Our programs are designed to develop the participants’ communication, leadership and occupational skills.

We pay special attention to increasing non-governmental organisations’ capacities as well as those of the volunteers working to solve social problems. We help to involve all the members of the community in our projects and activities, especially those related to civil responsibility, immigration, technology at service of people or smart cities.

OpenEurope is the first and only qualified multiplier point in the province of Tarragona of the European network EURODESK. It is an informational service about European programs and initiatives in the fields of education, training, occupation and youth.

Being an official point allows us to have free access to the network information and share it with the youth and all the people who might be interested. We offer advice and counselling about international youth exchanges within many European countries; we look for contacts or possible partners to carry out European projects and we give practical and useful advice on travelling to the European countries which belong to our network, among many other things.
