 The place´s goal is to make artists, researchers and medical doctors live together with the psychiatric patients that live there, stimulating artistic creation and interaction through several cultural activities, including workshops and theatrical presentations, as well as collective walks in the institution´s surroundings.

 The project aims to abolish the few asylums that still exists in Brasil, and to transform the rest of the building in an Open University, with classes for free, but the organizers are still struggling to get more official government support, something they couldn´t do yet.
