Awakenings Festival, Art is... festival to team up

WIMMERA Uniting Care’s Awakenings Festival is teaming up with Horsham’s Art is... festival for the second year running.

Awakenings celebrates people with disabilities in the arts and will run a series of events during the city’s major arts festival.

Wimmera Uniting Care marketing and media team leader Adele Rohde said the aim of the collaboration was to provide an inclusive and fun environment for people of all abilities.

“We’re really hoping that by working in partnership with the Art is....Festival, people with disabilities will feel comfortable and welcome participating in a mainstream festival which will truly make it a festival for all abilities,” she said.

Mrs Rohde said the return of the Awakenings Ball would be a highlight of the Awakenings events during this year’s festival.

She said people were encouraged to dress for the ball as their favourite decade to tie in with the Art is.. Layers of Time theme.

The ball will be on May 31.

Mrs Rohde said tickets for the ball were available at Wimmera Uniting Care’s Baillie Street, Horsham office or could be purchased by calling 5362 4000.
