This year’s 2016 Disability Awareness Festival is kicking off this Sunday 14th August from 6pm at the Jingili Water Gardens, with the free screening of Penguins of Madagascar! Food stalls will also be operating on the night, ensuring you’ll have a fabulous time! As mentioned, this screening is the launch event for the 2016 Disability Awareness Festival, which has been a key event on the Darwin Calendar now since 2004. Every year the festival has gotten bigger and better, and this year is certainly gearing up to look spectacular, with events running from Monday 15th August through to Saturday 3rd September.
So what does the Festival aim to do? Put simply, it promotes access to all community events for people living with a disability and advocates for the rights of these people. The Festival also supports the artistic, cultural and sporting aspirations of people living with a disability – people who have truly inspiring stories!
The 2016 program features a great line up of events suited for people of all ages. Here’s a sneak peak of just some of what is on offer:
