Clara Cernat and Thierry Huillet

Beyond Difference

08/11/2011 from 17:30 to 23:00

This fundraising concert is in support of the charity "White Horses". Eduard Brain's, French Consul in London, came up with this initiative to coincide with the inauguration of a lift at the French Consulate. Until now, access to the upper floors of the consulate had been made impossible for disabled people.

The aim of the concert is to highlight the discrimination that disabled people still have to face on a daily basis.
