BIENNIAL “DISABILITY – ACCESSIBILITY – INCLUSION” ACTIVITY:
ACCESSABILITY EXHIBITION ON SHOW AT MAHAL SANAT BETWEEN THE 3RD AND 16TH OF MAY
To live with dignity, regardless of disability, is a human right according to the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. With this in mind, the exhibition highlights the lives of 22 ordinary people of all ages from Turkey and Sweden living with disability. Through their intimate stories we get an understanding of the challenges that they face and their demands to take a full, equal and dignified role in society at large.
Erişiyorsam Varım! / AccessAbility Exhibition, is a co-production by the Swedish Institute, Ruh Sağlığında İnsan Hakları Girişimi Derneği (RUSİHAK), Engelli Kadın Derneği (ENGKAD) and the section for Cultural Affairs at the Swedish Consulate.
