This is us…

VOI FESCH – ORIGINAL DESIGN FOR MORE INCLUSION!

We make art made by people with disabilities visible.

We show talent and capabilities of artists through their original artworks to a broad public.

This is our project…

VOI fesch makes art by people with disabilities visible. Together with artists, we design products like t-shirts, bags (GOTS-certified), gift and promotional items as well as designs for labels and packaging. For even more visibility, we are also organizing art awards. These are wonderful for reaching many more artists with disabilities and encouraging them to showcase their own talents and abilities.

This is important to us…

With the VOI fesch Art Award, we are always looking for new, innovative ways to showcase the potential of art as design. Already we had the opportunity to design items from muesli bars to trucks. This time it will be organic cotton bags. The aim is to achieve an even greater visibility and to recognize the general and creative potential of people with disabilities and their importance to society.

This you cannot miss out on…

Currently, only the VOi fesch Art Award Tour is planned with a total of 4 stops and 15 award ceremonies in May 2022.

Our message to the crowd…

"It is important to me to put people in the foreground, regardless of their disability. We are all unique and create wonderful things throughout our lives. And so do our artists."
