2002-05-03 until 2002-05-12
High Beam Festival
Adelaide, SA, AU Australia

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.
