WID’s annual gala event, Ever Widening Circle, celebrates disability culture and serves as a model for presenting entertainment that is accessible for all audiences. Past performances have included comedian Josh Blue, actress Geri Jewell, and internationally renowned AXIS Dance Company, comprised dancers with and without disabilities. The success and visibility of Ever Widening Circle is the result of the strong collaborative ties between WID and its partners and sponsors. WID invites individuals and companies to join its commitment to disability rights and support this gala event.
