What is Paralym Art?
It is a social contribution project in which we work together with artists with disabilities as one team, to sustain the provision of support for people with disabilities along with the cooperation of private companies and individuals, without depending on social security funds.
The Paralym Art World Cup is a worldwide event for people with disabilities to express their artistic talents. Each year, a different theme is selected for artists from all over the world to submit their artworks. The Grand Prix winner, the Runners-up and other selected award winners will be invited to an award ceremony planned to take place in Tokyo, Japan in December 2022 (TBC).
