The programme ‘Barrier Free India’, being organised by Kerala-based NGO, ‘Prathyasha Foundation’, will showcase the talents of differently-abled persons, foundation’s managing trustee Simon George told reporters here.
Wheelchair dancing, singing, drama and other such performances will be showcased at the event, he added. This will be the first and the biggest such event held in the country so far, George said, adding, the aim is to create awareness among the public about the creativity of these artists.
