4th Reflection of Disability in Art International Festival of University of Macedonia


Thessaloniki, 18 October 2021

The Reflection of Disability in art International Festival with the acronym iRoDi, based on No. 19/22-4-2019 Meeting of the Senate, is an institution of our University and is organized every year from 3-10 December. The 4th International Festival "Reflection οf Disability in art" is held under the auspices of H.E. the President of the Republic, Katerina Sakellaropoulou, with the support of the Thessaloniki Film Festival, of the Ministry of Culture and Sports and of the Region of Central Macedonia.

The aim of the Festival is to support and promote the social inclusion of people with disabilities through their participation in cultural events in any role they wish, as actors, directors, volunteers or simply as spectators. Thus, during the preparation and implementation of the Festival, a large number of people with disabilities come into contact, move and coexist with people without disabilities in the wider ecosystem of the University of Macedonia, contributing decisively to the change of views and attitudes, especially of young people, on disability and, therefore, on social change.

In the context of the above, and with regard to the 4th Reflection of Disability in Art International Festival, the Festival's Organizing Committee, taking into account the data regarding the pandemic, decided to proceed with the organization in online form, with the cultural events being available freely and free to all( This decision is based on the recognition of the Festival’s obligation to the disabled and to all who represent diversity for its continuous and uninterrupted operation and to support, in this way, the ideal of social inclusion, but also of the University of Macedonia in general.

So, stay tuned to the website and social media of the Festival for the announcement in the coming weeks of the program which will include movie screenings,videos, speeches and much more!

The detailed program of the 4th Reflection of Disability in Art International Festival will be announced soon.
