Based on the observation that people with physical disabilities face many obstacles on a daily basis (isolation, lack of accessibility, harassment, etc.), the Festival Accès Asie, with the support of the Conseil des arts de Montréal and the MAI (Montreal, intercultural arts), set up the HABILITÉS project. This initiative aims to help artists with disabilities integrate into the professional arts community in Montreal. This conference is organized in addition to the solo exhibition Les Nocturnes by artist Azalia Kaviani, presented from May 6 to 30 at the Maison de la Culture Janine-Sutto. Azalia Kaviani is an Iranian-born visual artist and dancer who lives with cerebral palsy.
