WE&I ARTFEST : Created For The Differently Abled Community By The Differently Abled Community with support from ALL .

About this Event

The WE&I ARTFEST 2019 is an annual event which started in 2018 by parents and members of PWD artists and community. It is their continuous aim to bridge the gap within this community, which include various disabilities as well as create awareness to the public through various mediums starting with the arts.

This Christmas, The Godown KL is working with WE And I Art to bring people together whilst promoting goodwill and the spirit of sharing during this festive season. The celebrations begin on Sunday, 15th December 2019, with a creative bazaar and official launch event and continues with the exhibition throughout the week of 16th – 19th December 2019 followed by two full days of activities on the 21st & 22nd December 2019 weekend.

In conjunction with the month of THE INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES (PWD), the ARTFEST will showcase an art exhibition, a creative marketplace, various performances, talks & discussions, art workshops, a fashion show and also a film screening. The film screenings are courtesy of the Mental Health Film Festival Malaysia 2019 organized by Teeb TV.

This is also to heed the call towards achieving The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by the UN in Reducing Inequality (10) and creating Sustainable Cities & Communities (11) where the pledge is to LEAVE NO ONE BEHIND.Among some of the groups that are involved in the ARTFEST are the WE&I ART, OKU Sentral, co-founded by Ras Adiba Radzi, Malaysian Rare Disorders Society (MRDS) and Persatuan Pemulihan Orang Cacat (PPOC).

As WE&I ARTFEST 2019 unfolds throughout The Godown KL, visitors will be able enjoy and participate in activities such as dance and drum circle, soap-making workshop by Balance Tree and a massage therapy workshop by Jari Emas.
