Unmute ArtsAbility Festival is South Africa`s premier Integrated Arts Platform that presents a display of collaborative artistic works by artists with mixed-abilities (With and without disabilities) and from mixed genres (Music, Dance, Drama, Visual Art etc.) running from the 28th of November to the 3rd of December during the International Week of Persons with Disability.

The festival`s theme is ABILITY and it is the end product of residencies and workshops that are occurring during the months of October and November. Professional artists and/or art & culture organizations (Dancers, Actors, Musicians, Visual Artists, Photographers, film-makers) in collaboration with people and/or artists with various disabilities (blind, deaf, intellectual, physical and unseen disability) will research and investigate in rehearsal studios `what ability means?` for people who are stereotypically perceived as `unabled`.

This 7 days festival is inclusive of theatre performances, public/street performances, site-specific performances, artistic installations, exhibitions, film screenings, seminars, disability walks and art-markets featuring local, national and international artists.
