Sunday is a wonderful day for having fun with friends, family and kids, for meetings with closed ones and new people that we meet for first time; for exiting emotions and shared moments. On Sunday, 8th of October all this will be possible at ABILITY FEST SOFIA 2017. The interesting and still not so famous venue in Sofia – The Largo (Largoto-part of the Ancient complex “Serdika”) – will be transformed and filled with the energy of all participants in ABILITY FEST SOFIA.
We, Bulgarian Center for Not-For-Profit Law, Bulgarian Association for Persons with Intellectual Disabilities, Lumos, Maria’s World Foundation and Best Buddies Bulgaria are the organizers of this event. We are working with and for people with disabilities struggling for their better and dignified lives. In the 10thAnniversary year of adoption of the UN Convention on the rights of persons with disabilities, we have decided to address the matter of “disability” topic to the community in a different way.
The ABILITY FEST SOFIA is a challenge to those who wants to test themselves and their skills to cope with unusual situations in a playful and entertaining way. We believe that different abilities only allow us to find an unique place of each one of us in the world.
On October 8th, all festival attendants will be able to discover their abilities through a special pre-selected and developed games, tasks and labyrinths. For the most devoted ones, there will be surprises and awards. Various workshops will be organized throughout the day where people with disabilities will demonstrate different art techniques to express themselves and their imagination. Every participant in the ABILITY FEST 2017 will be able to create with his hands a peace of art and to keep it as good memory.
ABILITY FEST SOFIA 2017 will host also two exclusive exhibitions – a photographic called “We can too” created by Lumos Foundation, and the second one named “I decide=I am” by Nadezhda Georgieva and texts by Yana Buhrer Tavanier. The art works illustrate the right to work and equality of people with disabilities in a decent way.
We have prepared many surprises for you thanks to the support of our partners Global Initiative in Psychiatry-Sofia, Synergia Foundation, ASSIST – Assistive Technologies Foundation, Listen up Foundation, Bulgarian Business Leaders Forum and with the special cooperation of Dextrophobia Rooms.
