Art Includes – Celebrating Diversities !
We at Art Includes aims to provoke inclusion thru the many diverse faces of arts irregardless of Race, Religion and of course Abilities ! Arts must and can be celebrated because the Language of Arts itself is universal and barriers-free. Arts if allowed to be enjoyed without judgement can transcend all barriers and build a Universal Bridge of Inclusion.
At Art Includes we curate diverse Art events such as Installation and Experiential Arts thru Arts Beyond Sight, Music and Comedy thru Concert in the Dark and the Culinary Arts thru Cuisine in the Dark.
Visitors experience these events without their most important sense i.e Sight. These experiences allow the visitors to engage with the Artists who are mostly Disabled thru conversations with our ultimate aim of invoking and fostering inclusion and empathy. Abled Artists have also been invited to take part in these events alongside their fellow Disabled Artists which have forged unusually creative collaborations along the way. When the roles are reversed perhaps Inclusion in Diversities can be ignited !
