Since its beginning in 2013, as part of the multi-country programme EDUCA, Oficina de Arte has steadily grown. The project aims to continue promoting arts and cultural activities as a teaching and learning method, supporting local artists and integrating cultural subjects in schools and local communities. In particular, Oficina de Arte has the aim of reinforcing arts and handicraft workshops (theatre, dance and drawing) as extracurricular activities, as well as to foster capacity building between artists, professors and technicians. The themes explored in these activities vary from accounting to entrepreneurship, from environment to active citizenship. The direct beneficiaries of classes, workshops, events and exhibitions are the children of three primary schools in Pemba, their parents, educators and artists. Furthermore, art exhibitions and cultural events involve the entire community. Oficina de Arte 2018-2020 wants to extend its activities to Maputo too, by relying on a solid network in the area.
