NSDRC Workshops and Events
The Snapping Barrier Project:
The project will be a mixed media project, where participants create artwork that captures access barriers in the communities we live in.
– The artwork can be presented in photographs, video, poems, writing, painting, drawing or any other art medium. If you are not sure if your art medium is acceptable please contact Suzanne at the North Shore Resource Centre: Email S.Klassen@nsdrc.org or call 604-904-4088
Note: sculpture is not allowed for this project.
Note: Do not use copyrighted materials in your projects
– The project is open to anyone that self-identities with having a disability. This includes invisible and visible disabilities.
– The purpose of this project is to showcase how access barriers affect you personally on a daily basis, be it physically, socially or emotionally. Ideas regarding the removal of the barriers and its resulting positive impact can also be a focus of your project.
– Projects should be done by April 30th, 2018. The project will be shown in June 2018. Please send completed work to email@example.com. If you cannot send electronically, please contact Suzanne to arrange for other methods. Any questions, contact Suzanne.
We’re trying something a little different with this GoFundMe campaign, because we think it’s the perfect way to reach people in the community who want the opportunity to give something back and be part of creating a long term solution to a big problem that’s too often overlooked.
