There has been a lot of nonsense, and unfounded allegations recently regarding some of the stadia built for the FIFA 2010 competition. The concert today clearly demonstrated to everyone that Cape Town Stadium is fully accessible to all.
The concert could not have happened without some key individuals; Dave Hugo, from the City of Cape Town, Jean-Louis Romain & Wayne Dreyer, from SAIL Stade de France, Denise Robinson MP from Parliament, and of course the staff and learners at the school...who were amazing.
Today was a very special day. For me, as the access consultant to the stadium, it was the pinnacle of 4 years work; to see the accessible stadium being used by performers where individual disabilities made no difference to their performance or enjoyment.
