“The Association Tinkers proposes activities of social inclusion through tango for persons with and without disabilities in Europe and Latin America.For us, the essence of tango is the embrace. It allows the partners to connect and find each other in the rhythm of the music. This makes tango a unique and very powerful tool for inclusion. It enables people of different abilities, cultures, ages and social backgrounds to meet and interact on a personal level, in a space where there is no right or wrong. This is our contribution to create solidarity in society, at a time when this is most needed.“
