Since more than 200 years the Turin Institute for the Deaf is specializing in providing a wide range of services and activities to people who are deaf, hard of hearing or deafblind, as well as to people with severe speech and language impairment or an autistic spectrum disorder accompanied by severe speech and language difficulties or cognitive developmental delay. Institute for the Deaf (IST) believes that every person should have his/her right to education and care attained, regardless of disability or any other factor. Therefore, we exchange our knowledge worldwide with the aim to enabling children and adults with hearing or communication difficulties to participate in society and achieve their full potential. Hereto we support and/or cooperate with organizations who provide or ameliorate accessibility to language, communication and information. IST is active in the field of dual discrimination, working mainly with young people that face at least two possible reasons of weakness in the society: disabled and migrant; disabled and women; disabled with double diagnosis; disabled and unemployed.

MyArtist offers management, coaching, mentoring and counselling services to graduates from “arts schools”, inviting companies to “adopt” an artist and to undertake his / her operating costs (in order to create a table, a sculpture, to organize a photographic exhibition, etc.). My Artist brings creative talents into contact with companies of excellence. From the synergy between the company and the artist, an unprecedented art collection is born, an exceptional and innovative testimonial of an entrepreneurial artist identity.

The Association was founded in 2010 in order to support a group of young adults, alumni of the Istituto dei Sordi, to develop entrepreneurial skills and be more active in the world of work. The basic idea was to cooperate with the school in the management of some facilities (cantina, cafeteria) and to re-insert some unused assets into the economic track, such as a small farmland and some rooms formerly used for school purposes. All this in a perspective of growth also in the digital environment and with the introduction of innovative technologies in activities previously managed with very traditional formulas.
