vzw WHEELCHAIRITY asbl
From a one-off benefit music festival to making Brussels more accessible:
creating awareness and improving the disabled’s mobility.

2017 was another successful year for Wheelchairity! We were able to organize several inclusive
events and contributed to a more accessible society. However, accessibility for the disabled still
remains widely underestimated subject in Brussels, even in 2018. But the same goes for the other
major cities in Belgium. Cities like Berlin, Copenhagen, and even London prove that small adjustments
in urban development can result in major day-today improvements for the disabled. That is why it is
Wheelchairity’s intention to strive for further efforts in the matter, whether public or private, and
always doing so with a positive and inclusive attitude.

1. The beginnings
Originally, Wheelchairity was conceived and set-up as a one-off benefit music festival for a friend
who had been involved in a tragic car accident and was left paralyzed from the waist down for the
rest of his life. After the first edition (May 2012) it became however clear to the organizers that the
concept itself could be used to improve awareness with regards to the day-to-day mobility problems
of the physically disabled. So the one-off music festival became a yearly, inclusive (both disabled and
non-disabled persons attend) family event sensitizing its non-disabled audience in an unrestrained,
non-patronizing and non-pedantic way, inviting nationally renowned artists, and providing numerous
thematic activities for all ages. But Wheelchairity doesn’t stop there; hereafter we briefly present the
ambitions of the Wheelchairity organisation.

2. Ambitions
Wheelchairity has the following ambitions:


Improving the overall accessibility of those places that are currently not accessible for disabled
people.



Bringing together disabled and non-disabled people.



Organizing an inclusive festival on a yearly basis with performances of renowned artists and
sensitizing its non-disabled audience in an unrestrained, non-patronizing and non-pedantic way.



Increasing the awareness of the issues faced on a daily basis by people with a physical disability.

3. Festival
The festival is organised every year in Brussels. As mentioned previously its goal is to bring disabled
and non-enabled people together in an unrestrained, non-patronizing and non-pedantic way.
Throughout the day the visitors can enjoy performances of both locally as nationally renowned
artists. Besides they can also participate in several activities focussed on increasing the awareness of
the issues faced on a daily basis by people with a physical disability, e.g. wheelchair hockey,
wheelchair table tennis and ‘blindfolded soccer’. We also organise activities for the children.
Participation to all these activities as well as the access to our festival is completely free of charge, in
order to reach a broad audience, both young as old, disabled as non-disabled. This year our seventh
edition will take place on Saturday the 12th of May.

4. Financial needs
Although we receive financial support from some local firms, it remains a challenge to fund all our
activities on a daily basis. Therefor we are constantly on the lookout for new potential partners who
can provide us the necessary financial support enabling us to continue our work supporting disabled
people. We sincerely hope that you can be listed as a partner for the coming year.

Please feel free to contact us by email or telephone if any further information or financial figures are
required. Contact details are listed below.

Thank you in advance,
Yours sincerely
