The province is now an open-air museum in which our towns are part of the works. The people with disabilities who have taken part of the project are our true 'titans'," says José Manuel Caballero Serrano, President of the Provincial Council of Ciudad Real.
The aim of Titanes is to promote the successful integration of disabled individuals in society and the workplace through a collaborative project. Through the initiative, 450 individuals with disabilities from Laborvalía associations have been able to support 14 well-renowned urban artists, who were invited to make the project a reality by Okuda San Miguel. Okuda, who is famed internationally for his distinctive geometric art, describes the project’s aim to be “to change, through art, society's image of people with disabilities".
