The festival was founded in 2003 during the European Year of People with Disabilities. The festival has collaborated with different individuals, organisations and groups, collaborated with art museums, working artists, playgroups and musicians. The festival has initiated discourse on the image of disabled artists in the arts and the art of disabled people in collaboration with the University of Iceland, the National Museum, Reykjavik Art Museum and the Nordic House.
