Everyone can be an artist is a nationwide art competition organized by the Sulická Home for people with disabilities for all the people with mental disabilities from Czech Republic. The aim of the competition is to make their art visible.
“I’ve been saying for many years that everyone can be an artist, regardless of health status. I have personal experience with people with mental disabilities who paint brilliantly. Their works are often breathtaking. That is why last year we tried to hold a small Prague competition for people with mental disabilities and called it “Everyone Can Be an Artist.” It was successful and we decided with our colleagues to hold a nationwide competition with an exhibition, even with the possibility of selling the paintings,” explains Lenka Kohoutová, the director of the Sulická Home.
105 works of art from all over the country entered the competition, created by almost 80 authors with various forms of mental disability.
