The Festival takes place in the small town of Kas, which is located directly at the Mediterranean Coast, right halfway between the region's bigger cities of Antalya (190 km) and Dalaman (180 km).
Our Main target is to organize and institutionalize an International Social Inclusion ELLA Festival.
We have a very long experience in organizing music festivals on a national level as a "coming together" of all kind of people, with or without special needs. All performing arts, plastic arts and music will be the main topic to participate and the second topic will be the marketplace of related organisations from all over the Europe.
We aim to address the perception of disabled people in the different countries by organising international workshops in which people with disabilities will teach people without disabilities. This is 'switch of roles' will be accompanied by reflection and interchange about the experiences in the project and the general perception of people – with and without disabilities – in the different countries.
