Making art and disability work
 

International Day of People with Disability 2014

To celebrate International Day of People with Disability (IDPwD), Access2Arts partnered with the Adelaide City Council to devise and produce a series of creative responses to the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRP) itself.

Ratified by Australia on 17 July 2008, the purpose of the convention is to promote, protect and ensure the full and equal enjoyment of all human rights and fundamental freedoms for all people with disability, and to promote respect for their inherent dignity.

IDPwD is a United Nations sanctioned day that aims to increase public awareness, understanding and acceptance of people with disability and celebrate the achievements and contributions of people with disability.

IDPwD is held on 3 December each year and in 2014 Access2Arts and Adelaide City Council co-ordinate an innovative rights base awareness raising campaign to celebrate the day inviting deaf and disabled people to explore key articles from the UN convention.
