Our Story

Decorative background image.

Tractus Art creates systemic change through arts for people with disabilities by lifting their stories, lived experiences, voices, and skills for a world where instinctive inclusion is given.

 

Founders Christelle Dreyer and Silva Laukkanen met for the first time when hosting an inclusive dance jam in Cape Town in 2020. They started to work together to create something tangible and long-lasting from that moment. They chose Christelle and Silva, out of over two thousand applicants, to receive a Starling Grant in 2020, and that took them into a whirlwind of making Tractus Art a reality. We are honored and excited to start this journey and cannot wait to share it with you.

Tractus Art is dedicated to intercultural understanding as our founders work and reside across the world from one another.
