With Netta's victory at the ESC in Lisbon it began the possibility that anyone could dream of winning both in the competition and in life, regardless of their physical and mental characteristics.
The slogan is Dare to dream and we all have the chance to Dare to Dream. Eurovision is a song contest that promotes inclusion. This year's dream involves the inclusion of people with reduced physical and psychological abilities. Tel Aviv 2019 promotes inclusion both inside and outside the arena and to the world.
There is a large reserved area for viewers in wheelchairs during the shows and special seats for people with disabilities. In a small arena, with about a third of the capacity of the Lisbon arena, this is certainly an image of inclusion.
But the real mark is the performance of a band of 8 elements with physical disabilities, SHALVA BAND, whose two blind interpreters had a performance that contagious the whole arena during the rehearsals. Shalva Band will play in the interval act of the second semifinal today. Dare to dream everyday.
