The centre of additional educational “Vetraz”, the primary organization of the NGO “BelAPDIiMI” in Oktyabrskiy district of Minsk and the National Art Museum organized the festival. The aim of the event was to create equal conditions for people with disabilities and to form a positive attitude towards them by means of the art.
Children and young people with disabilities as part of inclusive groups demonstrated their talents. People with multiple disabilities became hosts of master classes which added zest to the festival.
These young people gained necessary skills in the public labour workshop under the special assistance, became more confident and now disseminate the knowledge acquired among other people.
The children’s model school “kidsPODIUM” had become a special guest of the inclusive festival. An inclusive fashion show “The little prince” was shown within the framework of the festival. The collection of children’s clothes Spring/Summer 2017, designed by Tatiyana Efremova, a Belarusian designer, was displayed on the catwalk. Children from the NGO “Belarusian association of assistance to children and young people with disabilities” participated in the defile.
