SILVA, Juliana Araújo  and  LIMA, Elizabeth M. Freire de Araújo. Marginality: inhabiting the "between" on the interface of arts and health. Cad. Bras. Saúde Ment. [online]. 2016, vol.8, n.20, pp. 219-238. ISSN 1984-2147.

This article is part of the dissertation "Poetics and marginality: experience in the Singing Citizens Project". This research was a cartography of that experience on this project created on 1992 in an interface between art and health, it consists in two workshops: a Scenic Chorus workshop and a Dance and body expression workshop. By mapping the problems that emerged during the encounter with this experience, blocks of discussion were built and organized around them. Specifically for this article we chose to focus on matters related with How to sustain such projects, on the interface between arts and health. The Project's relations with the cultural institutions are questioned. The research allowed to realize how, by existing in the between fields, at a border region that we here call marginality, as Hélio Oiticica told us, the Project potentiates itself on it's experimentations, incorporating elements of art, health and other fields.
