International Day for People with Disability
International Day of People with Disability (IDPwD) is a United Nations day celebrated around the world. The day not only celebrates the achievements and contributions of people with disability but also aims to raise awareness and acceptance.
ArtLife artists Megan Hunter, Steven Tran and Chelsea Michelle, along with street artist and disability activist Larissa MacFarlane, celebrate International Day of People with Disability with the launch of a collaborative paste-up.
Developed through a series of workshops and inspired by this year’s theme ‘leave no one behind’, the paste-up encompasses empowerment, transformation and breaking down barriers for all.
Join them in celebrating International Day of People with Disability with this special paste-up launch.
WHEN: Sunday 3 December, 1pm – 3pm
