ART in progress is a non-profit association that has among its objectives the creation of projects for leisure and entertainment, designed from time to time taking into account the social and cultural realities of the territories with which it intends to interact .
Flower is the acronym of the motto we have chosen for the project: For living on a wonderful ecological resource. The idea is to be able to live an experience in an environment that takes into account its natural potentials while respecting the environment itself. Ecology understood not only in reference to nature, but also in the way of living it, participating together with its possibilities in respect of social and cultural diversity.
