“Art-Therapy at the police station: creating bridges between young people and PSP agents”

Conference date: November 26, 2020 - 18:30

The Gira no Bairro Project – Uma Esquadra Aberta à Comunidade, was born from the union of Mundos de Papel Association and the Public Security Police – Oeiras Division and started in June 2019. The project is innovative and pioneering in Portugal, it takes place within a PSP Police Station in Caxias – Oeiras. The main objective of the project, along with the acquisition of personal and social skills, is to create bridges between the community, namely children and young people, and PSP agents. In this sense, daily activities are carried out with children and young people from the community and from the Centro Educativo Padre António Oliveira, as well as with the agents of authority, where in a different way, everyone lives together. The biggest highlight of the conference will be in the scope of the activities “Mundo Criativo” and “Gira Therapy”. So, we have Art in the Police Station!
