A celebration of the arts led, practised and performed by people with disabilities took place in Edinburgh last month. Future Perfect? was the culmination of the Scottish Arts Council's programme for European Year of Disabled People 2003. It featured Scottish and international performers, discussions, workshops, demonstrations and films, all emphasising the achievements of disabled artists.
Jim Tough, head of arts at the SAC, said the event was about consolidating progress in recent years and moving the agenda on towards "a more perfect future".
"It's a challenging ambition," he said, "but one that we must strive for if we are to call ourselves a truly inclusive society that respects and values diversity."
