Destination China
Physically challenged guests

June 2005


In Shanghai we had 40 physically challenged artists, 26 of whom were wheelchair bound. Many did extensions to Xian and Beijing. We have access to coaches and minivans in Beijing and Shanghai with wheelchair lift; in Shanghai there are 6 coaches that take 4 wheelchairs each and 10 minivans that take 1 wheelchair. In Beijing the number is greater but the age of the vehicles varies.

The importance of this event can be gauged by those who participated in the Opening Ceremony: The Secretary-General of the Shanghai Municipality, the Vice President of the China Disabled Federation, the Shanghai Foreign Affairs Office, Shanghai Culture Bureau, the Shanghai Art Association, Consuls from participating countries, and major newspapers and TV stations.

The Association of Foot and Mouth Painting Artists holds many exhibitions, with one major event every three years. Shanghai was chosen as their site for 2005. Artists’ works were specially collected from a large reservoir of paintings from all over the world and physically challenged guests from over twenty countries participated, including China. Here the Association is hoping to tap into the burgeoning market for gifts and cards.
