It’s called Celebrate on the Square – so we did.
More than a thousand people joined us on December 6 last year for what is now an annual gathering in Victoria Square to mark International Day for People with Disability (IDPwD).
There was colour and laughter, music and dancing, talks and displays, and the weather couldn’t have been better.
The LSA works with PQSA and Brain Injury SA to organise the event and we’re excited at how quickly it has become a recognised and important part of the events calendar for many people – even as a hectic time of the year.
The day aims to increase public awareness, understanding and acceptance through the celebration of the achievements and contributions of people with disability – and the participants did us proud.
From Donny Schulz’s art and Dieter Horvat’s musical charm to Mark Both’s dog training exhibition, there was plenty to enjoy.
The energetic Lolly Jar Circus, the Tutti Choir and Cal Williams Jnr provided additional entertainment, and we’d also like to thank former Crows star Brent Reilly for sharing his insights into recovery from a life-changing accident, as well as Hayley Pearson and Lauren De Cesare of Adelady for hosting in their unique way.
