Ek Taal Ek Saal
Arushi organizes a five-day Maitri Mahotsav in the first week of December every year to mark the International Day of Persons with Disabilities on December 3.
This five-day annual event is a celebration of an inclusive society. It exposes people with disabilities to various art forms and at the same time sensitizes others towards issues faced by them. It is an opportunity for people with disabilities to display their talents in an inclusive environment. There are workshops on clay modelling, sand moulding, drawing and painting; poetry recitations and exhibitions. Many well-known artists participate. The event ends with a cultural extravaganza called ‘Ek Taal Ek Saal’ in which children with disabilities from Arushi showcase their talents by performing songs, dance and skits on stage.
