BAAFF Mini Fest 2021

Hosted by Bluenose Ability Arts & Film Festival (BAAFF)

We hope you will be able to join us December 3rd to 5th to celebrate the International Day of Persons with Disabilities! Our mini festival will be taking place at the Light House Arts Centre at 1800 Argyle Street, and will also be streamed on BAAFF.ca as well as on our youtube page.

Together, let's celebrate and recognize outstanding artists living with disabilities and how their work is influential not only in the creative world as a whole but in shaping society's views of underepresented groups.

As per Nova Scotia Health regulations: All in-person attendees must wear masks and present photo ID and proof of double vaccination upon entry.

If you can’t attend in person, tune in online here on baaff.ca or on our YouTube page.

Bluenose Ability Arts & Film Festival was created to provide opportunities for individuals of all ages, abilities, and identities to connect with, share in, and gain a greater understanding of disability culture through the power of visual and performing arts. Every year we come together to celebrate and showcase a spectrum of voices unique to peoples living with disabilities by creating a platform that extends throughout our community and across the world. The arts allow people to explore, portray and capture their views and lived experiences in accessible ways, regardless of the medium. We extend an invitation to participants of all kinds: those who identify as persons living with disabilities, friends and families of those facing challenges or barriers in regards to mental or physical health, through to whoever else has a message to share - we want to hear from you.
