Snapping Barriers with ASL interpreters

We wish to inform you about our next Disabled Community Connection Network (DCCN) session. DCCN is a monthly communication and information group for people of all ages (16+) with any disability. This group is supported by the North Shore Disability Resource Centre and PeerNet BC.

Our next group is happening on January 18th, 4:00PM – 6:00PM. At PeerNet BC, #408-602 Hastings, Vancouver. We would be very appreciative if you could promote this session in your newsletters and on your social media-feeds.

This will be our second planning meeting for our media art project called Snapping Barriers. The mixed media art project will focus on capturing access barriers in the communities we live in. This meeting will focus on the timeline and scope of the project, as well as what the final project itself will look like.

Please come to the meeting with an idea of how you can personally capture barriers in your community. It can be through photographs, video, poems, writing, painting, drawing or any other art medium. Barriers can be physical, social or emotional. The purpose of this project to showcase how barrier affects you on a daily basis be it physically, socially or emotionally.

Note: you do not need to have anything done for the upcoming meeting, having an idea of how you are going to capture access barriers in your community is enough.

ASL Interpretation and food is provided! The space is also wheelchair accessible. Please let us know of any accommodations and dietary needs you require. Please email s.klassen@nsdrc.org or call 604-904-4088 to register.

Thank you for your time,

Lauren
DCCN Facilitator
