Our Mission

Bluenose Ability Arts & Film Festival was created to provide opportunities for individuals of all ages, nations and identities to connect, share and gain a greater understanding of disability culture and awareness through the 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.
