Celebrate at High Beam Festival, a biennial international arts festival
showcasing contemporary works influenced or inspired by experience of
disability. This ten day multi-arts festival will present the latest in
disability arts - new perceptions, innovations and visions. High Beam
offers a spectacular program of music, comedy, theatre, dance, art,
debate, workshops and community events.
There is still time to register your event as part of the High Beam
Festival and compliment Arts in Action's core program which will be a
10-day feast of shows and cabarets in every performing art form, loads
of exhibitions and installations, workshops, masterclasses and
discussion forums around important matters to do with Arts and people
with disabilities. Switch on your High Beam, focus it on May and talk
to the folks at Arts in Action about your ideas and let them know how to get our
program to you.
