Matera, located in the Southern Italian region, is home to numerous creative people developing participatory arts projects that empower adults to unleash their creativity.

Most of them have a neighborhood-based involvement of people, by engaging local dwellers in the creative regeneration and embellishment, and creating a sense of belonging and social inclusion. Some others have more the dimension of personal discovery, development and improvement.

Some of them have also been involved in the consultation process to design the project methodology of the Erasmus+ project Motivate to Create.

Here you can find a list of them: non-exhaustive, because such type projects are constantly sprouting here and there in Matera and many others have been made in the past; a synthetic list, guided by key #hashtags, related to the creative activities carried out for adults, so as to highlight the key words and activities and encourage you to find out more on their web pages!
