The non-profit association MAAP – Atelier d’arte Pubblica, based in Matera, aims to apply artistic methodologies in the social space with the aim of increasing collective well-being through the sublimation of the talents of places and individuals. MAAP looks at the margin as a privileged condition to listen to the breath of small things, to experience the surprise of a hidden beauty, enjoying the simplicity of habits far from pressing rhythms. The goal of the project is to act within small communities that perceive as a situation suffered the distance from an imaginary “center”. The aim is not to break down the peripheral condition, but give it strength as an additional value.
