BiG-i Art Project Call for Entries 2014
 
“A new world awaits beyond the door of possibilities”
 
■ What is the BiG-i Art Project?
Art has the ability to connect people. Using this ability, the BiG-i Project encourages communication among all people, with or without disabilities, to share happiness and joy with each other. This project intends to help those with disabilities find their potentials and realize their dreams by following three concepts:
- Offering people with disabilities opportunities to engage in artistic activities;
- Discovering and fostering talented artists; and
- Supporting and promoting activities for artists with disabilities.
