Arona’s pledge towards accessibility
CAP-FEST, the festival that breaks taboos around functional diversity, presents its programme of inclusive and accessible activities for its third edition on December 2nd and 3rd in Arona.
The AAA Arona Accesibility Awards will also celebrate its second edition on December 2nd at the Infanta Leonor Auditorium in Los Cristianos.
The accolades recognise the work carried out by illustrious people of the group and will have the presence of the writer and presenter Màxim Huerta and the Paralympic athlete Gema Hassen Bey.
This festival, of international projection and scope, will focus its actions on concerts, conferences and many other parallel activities in different areas.
All activities are free and accessible. More than 12,000 people have gone through their previous editions.
The Mayor of Arona, José Julián Mena, explained during the presentation of the festival, that the commitment to this event is born “because it makes very visible the values of the municipality, a municipality in which we work so that people are treated only as such, without their origin, identity or characteristics being an obstacle to lead a full life.”
The director and producer of the festival, Olga Payar, explained that this event has become “a national and international reference”.
The date of celebration of the CAP-FEST coincides with the annual commemoration of the International Day of Persons with Disabilities, which is celebrated every December 3rd. The festival will take place in several spaces around the Auditorium Infanta Leonor and Cultural Centre of Los Cristianos.
The main spaces of the Festival of Capacities are: CAP-LIVE, which is the seal that encompasses the activities of music and theatre and CAP-TALK, where different lectures and conferences will take place around sports, Alzheimer’s, technology and sexual diversity.
