One of the objectives of the ONCE Foundation since its creation 30 years ago is to achieve the full inclusion of people with disabilities in all areas of life. The ONCE Foundation focuses a large part of its efforts on the labor insertion of people with disabilities, being aware that other areas such as culture cannot be forgotten in order to achieve total normalization in the lives of the people who make up this group.
For this reason, the ONCE Foundation organized in Madrid in 2006 the 1st International Biennial of Art ONCE Foundation, with the primary objective of recognizing and disseminating the work of artists with some type of disability, as well as enhancing their access and participation in the art market.
But it was also intended to evoke the attention of the world of culture and art about the reality of the world of disability and its enormous potential. Due to the success obtained in the first edition of its International Biennial, the ONCE Foundation once again committed to the organization new editions and, with the aim of continuing with the foreseen objectives and improving the results of the previous editions, poses the VII International Biennial of Contemporary Art from May to September 2018.
