Disability Awareness Festival (DAF)

City of Darwin is proud to be a sponsor of the annual Disability Awareness Festival (DAF).

City of Darwin and Council’s Disability Advisory Committee have been involved with Disability Awareness Festival since 2004 and the celebrations have gained momentum each year.

The festival aims to promote access to all community events for people with a disability; advocate for the rights of people with a disability and support the artistic, cultural and sporting aspirations of people with a disability. Information regarding disability services is distributed throughout the festival program and events, encouraging the community to think more broadly and creatively about what people with a disability can accomplish and how they can lead a fulfilled life in the community.
