Dr Harry Swart (Governance & Compliance) and Verena Pillay (Marketing & Communications Manager) from the NCPPDSA joined us on the iStart2 Show this week. We chatted about separate versus inclusive legislation for disabled people, the process of mainstreaming and how the NCPPDSA is seeking to create a more sustainable world for persons with disabilities and their organisation. "Our biggest challenge is to find sustainable partners for the sustainable living of our organisation", says Harry.
"iStart2 work for an inclusive society in South Africa" - Verena Pillay
The full day festival will showcase a variety of art forms including music, dance, performance, fine art, poetry and writing. The event aims to create the awareness that artists with disabilities can function and perform with mainstream artists. Top artists will join iStart2 Ambassador Pops Mohamed in embracing the spirit of solidarity and highlighting diversity, disability and sustainability.
