The aim of Artemisia is to create a network of Italian parents with disabled children, so that they can support each other and share personal experiences and useful information. This network is a way to find together ways to intervene and contribute to the european debate about the legislation on the disabled people’s rights.
Artemisia is then a meeting point for different kinds of parents. It will allow them to help each other with information on the bureaucratic procedures, the support and the rights for disabled people in Germany, but is is also a place for debating on the many issues about the integration in schools and working-places, and consequently about the inclusion in Germany’s social structure.
Artemisia aims to be a place of mutual support while keeping its distinctive Italian culture, for bilingual or Italian parents. The difficulty in becoming part of the German social fabric is even higher when we try to keep our cultural integrity. A place where these differences may be set aside will allow a better adjustment for mixed and Italian families. Ultimately, the people adhering to this project will determine its development.
