Friday, Dec. 3rd
International Day of Persons with Disabilities
The annual observance of the International Day of Disabled Persons was proclaimed in 1992 by United Nations General Assembly resolution 47/3. It aims to promote the rights and well-being of persons with disabilities in all spheres of society and development, and to increase awareness of the situation of persons with disabilities in every aspect of political, social, economic and cultural life. The name of the observance was later changed to the International Day of Persons with Disabilities. The main program of the observance of the International Day of Persons with Disabilities at the UN Headquarters in New York will include the Opening, panel discussions and cultural events. Member States, civil society organizations and the private sector are welcome to organize their own events to celebrate the International Day to raise awareness and promote the rights and perspectives of persons with disabilities around the world.
Borderless Arts TN has observed this international day for the past 5 years. In the past, we have hosted events at the Sumner County Tourism Center, but with the advent of COVID we have pulled the celebration online.
This year our celebration will be held via Zoom at 7pm on Friday, Dec. 3rd. The event will feature performances by our dance and guitar programs. We will also show a video of an international art exchange that we are doing with South Africa. The art created for this exchange will be unveiled. Participants will then create a piece of glass art with Betty Turney Turner. This is leading into the theme of the UN for 2022 which is the Year of Glass.
The glass workshop is full, but you may certain join us via Zoom to watch the various performances and activities. Please contact Borderless Arts TN to obtain a Zoom link.
