Singapore will host True Colours Festival, an Asia Pacific celebration of artistes with disabilities, from March 22-25. Some 20 exceptionally talented artistes/troupes will arrive in Singapore to perform in an event in the Asia Pacific region.

True Colours is presented by UNESCO and The Nippon Foundation (TNF), two international organisations which champion the rights of persons with disabilities (PWDs). It is produced by Very Special Arts Singapore (VSA) and supported by partners including Platinum Partner DBS, Venue Partner Singapore Sports Hub and Asia-Pacific Development Centre on Disability (APCD).

The festival comprises a ticketed multimedia indoor concert experience at the Singapore Indoor Stadium, a free admission outdoor festival village and an international conference on arts and disability.

The concert, which will be performed on three evenings, will present musicians, singers and dancers from the Asia Pacific, along with guest artistes from Canada, the UK, the USA and Chile, according to an international media report.
