Art as a Form of Communication Across All Types of People
July 16, 2018
Not all people are the same. While there are those who are born fine and good, there are those who are born with a disability. Disability is the situation wherein the movement or the activity of a person is restricted. There are many causes of this. Sometimes, it is impairment if the sensory motors that are can cause disability. There are also times when the this can be caused by the impairment of the neurological and cognitive system. There are still many causes why people become handicapped, but nevertheless, the effect is the same – they are somewhat hampered by this and there are things that they cannot do as easily as those who do not suffer from the same disability.
Disability can also be acquired. There are times when the individuals who suffer from it were survivors of accidents. They can also be heroes who sacrificed themselves to save others. They may be victims of unfortunate circumstance such as a car accident after they back away from their garage door in Tempe and such disability was a product of it.
When people suffer from a disability, there are times when they think that their lives are over. They lose hope and they begin to suffer from depression. They think less of their selves compared to others. They forget their worth and they resolve to self-pity which can sometimes be destructive and harmful. They ruin themselves instead of picking up from where they left off and moving forward. They lose hope.
Dis Art Festival wants to address this. We want to give hem back the hope they have lost. We want to transform them back to their original selves, if not better. We want them to realize that it is not the end of the world and they could still play an important role in the community. This is by cultivating their innate talent and transforming it into something wonderful.
Annually, at Dis Art Festival, we celebrate the talents of our brothers and sisters who are handicapped. We showcase their talents and all forms and let them show to the world that the fire is kept burning in their hearts. The talents we feature usually from them are shown through different art forms. Sometimes it could be painting. But there are also times when there are sculptures made of different materials such as marble, cement, chalk, and even metal. We also feature wood carvings and sometimes baskets and clothes that are the product of weaving. You’d really be amazed at how creative they can be.
Aside from those who showcase their art, there are individuals who choose to show their talent through performance. There are always dance numbers and song numbers that are being performed. Sometimes, they also show their talent by playing a musical instrument in tune of a popular song. The effect is majestic and emotional which never fail to elicit tears from our audience.
The purpose of this is that to keep empowering them and to keep boosting their confidence. We want to show them a new light in this world. They may not be able to do normal activities, but they still have talents that when put into use, could make them rise above all.
Join us for our annual Dis Art Festival! We promise you good entertainment in music and art form.
