Outsider Music Fest 2012 at Diakonie Sf. Gheorghe


International Music Festival For People with Disabilities, by People with Disabilities

Every year, Diakonie’s Iris House organises public events to promote its activities in Sfantu Gheorghe. This year a music festival takes place on 28 April, with inclusive music bands: Tordasi Rainbow Band, Krizbai Teca, Iris House Dancers and Singers, Iris House Action Group and others.

Iris House provides support to young adults with disabilities who lack access to day-care facilities and services, and who are looking to achieve greater integration in the society, as well as employment. The center’s┬áactivities range from day care and sheltered employment, to educational and vocational training, the pathway to full employment. Iris House aims to bring about a change in societal attitudes towards disability, challenging prejudices, so as to enable people to learn skills, to access necessary assistance and be independent.
