Medis 5 is a cultural center for 24 people with minor intellectual disabilities (PWD), working to produce theatre, music, art, photo, film, poetry and workshops. Medis 5 also have a special focus on teaching leadership for PWD. The staff, consisting of seven people, has university degrees in various disciplines in art, photography, film, IT and music but not in social care.

 

Our strength is to be serious and professional about the work the people with disabilities and leaders are doing at Medis5. The people with disabilities will be working in productions correlating to their skills. And when the time is right the people with disabilities will get training leading others.

 

By working in this way the people with disabilities will grow in their self esteem and competences. They will be more able and better prepared to meet the society, to have a realistic self-image, not only as learners but also as professionals and leaders, to take responsibility and demand their rights. Medis5 is being administered by Sensus, an NGO for adult education and culture and is financed by the municipality of Stockholm.
