​MISSION AND HISTORY

FUNclusion is an annual entertainment event for the whole family.  We provide a multisensory platform for creative, cultural and educational activities and presentations - highlighting the work of individuals whose creative gifts go unnoticed due to social stigmas that marginalized people with disabilities.  

 

We raise funds to produce the event and provide year-round inclusive programs throughout South Florida and other communities.  Our curriculums allow individuals with special needs to develop the skills of independent living, learn about services and benefits available to them, and to participate in events and activities that promote inclusive social & professional networking.

 

The event will include live performances, speakers, a designer fashion walk, vendors, art and other activities.  As a platform for upcoming talents, we adhere to our motto of inclusion when selecting performers during our scheduled auditions - working with professionals to create an effective step into their artistic careers.
