Since its inception, Serendipity Arts Festival has made considerable and conscious efforts to make the festival as accessible as possible to a diverse community of art lovers. The current situation is only a challenge to our imagination, thus leading us to curate accessibility via digital media and platforms. Access For ALL has curated Senses Virtual, a digital platform to provide access via inclusive arts based therapies and creative workshops focusing on mental health and diversity.

Text Zentangle

This Zentangle workshop is focused on creating pattern designs and mindfulness (purposely drawing something) to avoid random thoughts. Zentangle helps us establish an internal nonverbal language of patterns and proportions, opening the door to new perceptions that are usually blocked off from our awareness. Just like mandalas, this method is a form of “modern meditation”.

Inclusive Home Care Management

The current situation has restricted mobility for all, including those with special needs, keeping them away from any form of therapy or engagement. Access For ALL has come  up with some resourceful DIY activities which parents and caretakers can use for persons with special needs. The activities are designed keeping in mind the lack of availability of additional resources and how basic things at home can be altered for a sensory and motor-skills engagement for special-needs participants.
