> > > DaDaFest International 2014: Rachel Gadsden Al Noor: Fragile Vision


18 January 2015

I was really quite moved when I read this article review by Jade French, about the plight of people with disabilities in the Middle East.. What strikes a cord is the struggle woman still have in such circumstances of oppression. At the same time I am glad to know the Rachel Gadsden exhibition ‘Al Noor~Fragile Vision’ had such good support. We have been fortunate in England with the ‘Year of the Disabled’ early in the decade of 1980 and other initiatives, such as the ‘Equal Opportunities Policy’ and include disabled artists in several artists’ activities such as in the ‘'Yorkshire Arts Index Directory' based in Bradford during 1988, for instance.
