Able and proud of it, thank you

Ask any member of RED Inc and they’ll tell you they are not defined but what they can’t do, but instead by what they can. And they can do a lot.

Lately members of RED Inc have been busy getting ready for the veryAbility Festival, a project RED Inc has embarked upon in conjunction with RealArtworks to investigate the role love plays in our lives. The festival is the culmination of months of workshops in performance, music, scripting, prop design, and many other artistic pursuits that people with disabilities right around the region have attended.

The centrepiece of the festival is a multimedia performance called Normal Television, which will be performed on International Day of People with a Disability (Thursday, December 3) at 1pm and 7pm.

The verAbility Festival also includes many others activities including a masquerade Ball of Love on Saturday, November 28; a film festival on Sunday, November 29, from 2pm; and a cabaret show on Wednesday, December 2, at 6pm.

All events are on at Lismore City Hall and the cost is $10/5 to most sessions. Stay tuned for more details in next week’s Echo or for more information, phone RED Inc 6622 3400.
