Inuti Foundation was established in 1996, with the main objective to provide a creative and open-minded workplace for artistically talented adults with learning disabilities and/or autism spectrum disorder. Today, over 60 artists have their working space in one of the three Inuti Studios, Inuti Lilla Essingen, Inuti Södermalm and Inuti Västerbroplan.
Inuti Gallery opened in 2016. The gallery regularly exhibit works by national and international artists, within the Outsider Art field. International cooperation and exchange of ideas and practices is essential to Inuti. Inuti is a member of European Outsider Art Association, EOA and Nordic Outsider Art, NOA.
Inuti Collection, a unique selection of artworks, contains more than 400 artworks.
Two of the studios have Artists’ Cooperatives, to support participation in cultural life and strengthen/expand social networks.
In addition to the day to day work in the studios, Inuti frequently coordinates exhibitions, workshops and art projects in collaboration with artists, artisans, art institutions and museums. Inuti organizes a wide variety of art events, where community interaction is as important as integration in the Art World. Art is empowerment.
The Inuti studios operate as Daily Activity Centers, in accordance with the law LSS. LSS regulates the support and service offered to persons with certain disabilities.
