As part of International Day of Disabled Persons (IDPD) 2018 on Monday, December 3, NuVu collaborated with Heidi Latsky Dance to produce the ON DISPLAY Global event at the Boston Architectural College. The performative wearables designed by our NuVu students for the event silhouetted the dancers for this unique show.
As the UN states, "The theme for this year’s IDPD is “Empowering persons with disabilities and ensuring inclusiveness and equality”. This theme focuses on the empowering persons with disabilities for the inclusive, equitable and sustainable development envisaged in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
The 2030 Agenda, pledging to 'leave no one behind,' is an ambitious plan of action of the international community towards a peaceful and prosperous world, where dignity of an individual person and equality among all is applied as the fundamental principle, cutting across the three pillars of the work of the United Nations: Development, Human Rights and Peace and Security. It is critical to ensure, in this regard, the full and equal participation of persons with disabilities in all spheres of society and create enabling environments by, for and with persons with disabilities."
