  1. We are inspired by your organization and its commitment to the community. My name is Madeline Mack, I am the team coordinator for the freedom project, a cooperative effort with a number of community members that would love to collaborate with you.

    See our website for the call for artworks poster Please consider facilitating submission of artworks through your initiative. I understand it’s important to your organization that the artists within your program are considered career artists, that their practice is considered a business with potential for income. Be aware that this is an artistic project/experiment rather than an art exhibition and artworks are donations. We aren’t looking for fine art but rather personal expressions of freedom from diverse voices, so the call for artworks could be extended to the larger autistic community as well as the career artists. We love what you are doing and we want to be inclusive in our global effort to define freedom.
    We would welcome individual submissions or group collaborations. We understand that sometimes a group piece is easier to donate to a project like ours. Even though the artwork submissions are anonymous, we would love to endorse your program and use this project as a springboard for further collaboration on the subject.

  2. Dear Sirs,

    I’d like to bring to your attention that our non-profit foundation “CHARISMA”, established to assist artists with disabilities, has produced a 90 minute show titled “ARTISTS with EXTRAORDINARY ABILITIES in CONCERT”, starring Jose Feliciano and co-starring 50 international artists with disabilities. It will give us great pleasure if you were to encourage your associates and “friends” to watch the aforementioned show, (free of any charge) thus promoting our cause. You can do so at –

    Please note that in the near future we intend to produce yet another show in the likes of “ARTISTS with EXTRAORDINARY ABILITIES in CONCERT”. If you have an act, which you would like me to include in our next production, please feel free to send me your video.

    My warmest regards from Cyprus,

    Stavros Sideras
    Honorary Professor,
    Award winning Writer, Composer,
    Producer, Director,
    Co-Founder and President of “Charisma”
    Member of UNESCO Greece
