AccessAbility portrays 26 individuals from various backgrounds and walks of life. 26 people whose hopes, desires, and dreams are shared with the visitors of this exhibition. 26 portrayals of people who have different types of disability but who represent themselves, not their disability. Through their voices it becomes obvious that impairment does not determine who you are.
With these 26 portraits and stories from real lives, we hope to show that we are all the same. We all want to live with dignity in a world that treats us fairly and equally.
The fight has not yet been won. But giving everyone the same chance to be seen and heard is a step in the right direction.
The exhibition will be showcased from April 17 to May 9 at the Danish Cultural Center in 798 art district.
During the exhibition a range of activities will be organized; make-up course for visually impaired, talks on accessible fashion with BIFT, screening of the documentary Catwalk etc.
