InArte was a São Luiz Teatro Municipal co-production.
The main aim of InArte is to promote and reveal the arts as a way of educational, occupational and social integration, raising the awareness of professionals working with people with special needs, and others, to the importance of the arts as a tool against social exclusion.
InArte aims to build foundations for a society where disabled people and other communities learn through, participate in and enjoy the arts, promoting access for everyone.
