"Breakfast cinema"

Info-Handicap launched its « Breakfast cinema » action for the first time on the European and International Day of Persons with Disability in 2011 in collaboration with the « Loterie Nationale » (Luxembourgish National Lottery), Cine Belval and Belval Plaza in Esch-sur-Alzette. The gathering consisted in showing movies dealing with the life of persons with disabilities. A breakfast snack was offered before the film session in order to promote meeting and exchange between visitors with and without disabilities. The participation was free of charge and was open to everyone interested.

In the framework of its cooperation commitment with the “National Disability Council Info-Handicap” the “Loterie Nationale” sponsored the renting of the cinema premises. A presentation video of the “Loterie Nationale” activities was displayed on a huge Plasma screen during the breakfast.

During the whole week-end associations of or for persons with disabilities presented their activities in the adjacent shopping mall which offered a great visibility.

Traditionally, within the scope of December 3rd, Info-Handicap has been collecting articles of its over 50 member associations to be published in the local press at that day. This tradition aims at the awareness rising concerning every day challenges in social life for people with disabilities.
