Come and celebrate  International Day of People with Disability (IDPwD) in the Tweed! 

Council will be hosting the half day fair for everyone at Kingscliff Community Hall and the adjacent Rowan Robinson Park on Coodjinburra Country, from 9am to 2pm NSW time.

The fair will be one of the thousands of events globally that aim to celebrate the diverse and vibrant nature of our communities and to also start conversations at a local level that challenge perceptions and attitudes about living with disability.

On the day, live music from Lily Budiasa and a Spin It DJs set will set the scene while Sprung!! Integrated Dance Theatre will perform one of their dynamic live performances – and they will also be inviting people to join creative dance workshops.

About International Day of People with Disability (IDPwD)

International Day of People with Disability (IDPwD) is a United Nations Observed Day celebrated every year on 3 December. It is a day to acknowledge the contributions and achievements of people with disability and to promote awareness, understanding and appreciation in our community.

The day is an opportunity for our community to make positive changes to the lives of 4.4 million Australians – and approximately 19,000 people within our own Tweed community – who experience some form of physical, sensory and/or cognitive disability.

This year’s theme for the day is ‘Transformative solutions for inclusive development: the role of innovation in fuelling an accessible and equitable world’.

We also acknowledge and respect the Tweed Aboriginal community’s right to speak for its Country and to care for its traditional Country in accordance with its lores, customs and traditions.
