Gaining a better understanding of people who are different from us opens up new doors: creating dialogue between people with special needs and the general public, and overcoming the fear of differences, are central to this initiative.
Through information stands, activities, lectures, film screenings and exhibitions, you'll learn more about the daily lives and needs of people with special needs. And once again this year, the City will also be hosting its ever popular "dinners in the dark".
The 9th Special Needs Awareness Weeks – organised jointly by the City's Comité participatif (Special Needs Participative Committee) and a number of associations and partners – will take place from 23 April to 4 June 2022.
