Join us for
A Conversation on Sport and the Human Abilities of People with Disabilities
When: 23 May 2019
Time: 10 am – 1 pm Colloquium
1pm – 1.30 pm Exhibition opening
Venue: Artscape Theatre, Cape Town
This conversation will start with the inspirational photographic exhibition of the Victor’s Project that shows Paralympians, veterans, and volunteers of Anti-Terrorist Operation (ATO) who became amputees as result of the Russian aggression against in Ukraine. The exhibition consists of 17 photos made by well-known artist Alexander Morderer and Tatiana Rubliova.
The project was created to support veteran’s psychological rehabilitation and reintegration into social life via sport.
We will also draw inspiration from disabled South Africans who are involved in sport to promote a healthy, active lifestyle.
We hope the conversation will highlight the enabling factors for others to participate in sport and explore how we can upscale such initiatives to make them more accessible for more people.
The event is organized by Disability Innovations Africa, University of Cape Town, Ukrainian Association of South Africa, Embassy of Ukraine in RSA in association with Artscape Theatre Centre.
The social multimedia project THE VICTORS is a joint initiative of TSN (Television Service of News, 1+1 TV Channel) and VIVA! Magazine.
