Art brings people with different abilities together. In the course of art development, we have seen that through artistic creations, not only the talents of the people with intellectual disabilities are demonstrated, but also they gain various opportunities to develop careers and connect with the community. Most importantly, they build their self-confidence, regain autonomy and change their lives.
Presented by i-dArt, 2019 International Conference on Art Development for People with Intellectual Disabilities will take place on April 11-13 2019 in Hong Kong and will explore fields, including (1) Right of people with intellectual disabilities to participate in art and cultural activities;(2) Appreciation and facilitation of the hidden artistic talents of people with intellectual disabilities;(3) Promoting the artistic talent by people with intellectual disabilities. Join us to exchange views and share experiences with professionals and interested parties from all over the world. Let us, as people with different abilities, go on this journey together and see how far we can go.
