Note: We had made an improvement and better English wording of the name of the whole multi-event that is to be the “Celebration of the Specific Capabilities of the Deafblind” and to be different and not to be mixed with the word “Festival” that remains only for the “Amateur Arts Festival”. As well in English there are idioms “celebration of diversity” and “to celebrate diversity” that is closely emanates with the motto “Unity in diversity”. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unity_in_diversity
