New festival highlights access for all


The first edition of a rather unique festival arrives in Limassol this September and it is a two-day event in which everyone, regardless of abilities, can participate. Access4All is a celebration of inclusiveness, for everyone and to promote equality for people with disabilities. The festival on September 10 and 11 intends to break down barriers and fight for the rights of individuals with disabilities.

Through a series of activities, the mission of the festival is to raise public awareness, but also to inform policymakers and professionals about the needs and fundamental rights of people with disabilities at a local and regional level, to improve their quality of life. On the second weekend of September, the old port square will transform into a playground and a festive space that will host 3Χ3 wheelchair basketball tournaments, informational booths, a human library, a live choir and more.

With an important cause to highlight, the festival is supported by more than 20 governmental bodies, semi-governmental organisations, research centres, NGOs, and organisations that design and implement activities related to the rights and social/professional integration of people with disabilities. Its official organisers, RESET and CSI Center for Social Innovation, in collaboration with Cyprus 3X3, are working together to make the first edition of the festival one to remember.
