International Day of Persons with Disabilities - A Celabration For All
A cooperation of Labyrinth of Senses and Joy Park: A Park for All!

In cooperation with Impact Hub Athens and Municipal Market Kypselis, the organizations Labyrinth of Senses and Joy Park: A Park for All (NPO) organize a series of activities that aim to information and familiarization with diversity for children and adults of all capabilities.

The Labyrinth of Senses team calls us to cross a “Labyrinth”, using our senses and eventually offers us an  unexpected and unique journey with stations to understanding, respect and acceptance. Labyrinth of Senses is an experiential disability awareness workshop, which aims to motivate everyone into doing small, but remarkable actions in our everyday life that promote one and only message: love to ourselves just as we are, but also love to others just as they are.

The Joy Park: A Park for All team calls children and adults to participate in a series of adjusted entertainment activities for people with and without disabilities. In cooperation with the theatrologist and author, Ersi Niaoti, we call children with and without difficulties to participate in an adjusted drama workshop, with the goal of participating under equal circumstances, but also of creating new friendships between children with different capabilities.

Furthermore, in cooperation with the dance team, Griego Latino, we invite adults with and without a disability to participate in an experiential latin dance workshop, with the aim to achieve communication, expression and entertainment through dancing, but also the creation of new relationships between people of different capabilities.
