The International Festival "Reflection of disability in art" (iRoDi Festival), invites the interested parties to send their work to join in the program of the 5th Festival that will be held in Thessaloniki. Greece, December 3 to 10, 2023.

The purpose of the festival is to highlight art through the perspective of disability. The idea starts from the inalienable right of people with disabilities to express themselves through art either amateur or professional. The festival is meant to reflect the skills of people with disabilities and the opportunities that each society has to provide to each individual, contributing to the cultural identity of the individual and society.
