Our Projects

Abuja International Arts Festival

This is our annual festival showcasing the creative and artistic potentials of people with disabilities in Nigeria, it is the only festival for people with disabilities in Nigeria and entire West Africa.

The festival focuses on four major art forms: theatre performances, music, dance, and visual art. The festival has become a major platform for gathering of disabled artists, media, civil society, development partners, and art lovers.

The festival provides the space to deepen advocacy and engage policymakers on issues of persons with disabilities.

Disability Arts Space West Africa

Our monthly newsletter promotes visibility for disability art and connects disabled artists in Nigeria and West Africa.

Our major objective is to link disabled artists in West Africa, publish useful resources and opportunities on disability art and continuously build the capacity of disabled artists and art managers, advocate for inclusive art event spaces for disabled artists to showcase their works and tell their stories.

The newsletter currently has over 1500 readers on its list serve.  Our goal is to become a leading resource base for teaching disability arts in West Africa.

 

This is the annual exhibition of contemporary visual arts inspired by the experiences of people with disabilities in elections in Nigeria.

The program has contributed in the ongoing dialogue on disability inclusion and participation in the electoral processes.

Vital Voices for Democracy has become a strong tool in amplifying the voices of people with disabilities as core drivers of change in the governance processes.

 

This is our annual arts and craft fair in different parts of the country.

Our goal is to ensure that people with disabilities get fair wage for their creative talents and handicrafts.

They sell their works directly to socially conscious consumers from across the country and also around the world and this helps to improve their livelihood, afford quality life, and participate effectively in their communities.
