Snapping Barriers Art Show, proudly supported by the Northshore Disability Resource Centre

The Snapping Barrier Project is a mixed media project, where disabled participants created artwork that captured access barriers in the communities they live in. The purpose of this project was to showcase how access barriers affect the disabled community personally on a daily basis, be it physically, socially or emotionally.  

The Art show will be at Lynn Valley Centre – North Vancouver. Room: Unit 129-C –just past the shoe repair and elevator. The art show will be open June 11th, 13th, and 15th between 1:00 pm – 4:00pm.

This is a great learning and educational opportunity! Someone will be available to guide viewers through the show and answer questions

Please come support your local disabled community and enjoy some beautiful art!

Return of the Sea Otter: The Story of the Animal that Evaded Extinction on the Pacific Coast

Rhode Island-based writer Todd McLeish has been writing about wildlife and environmental issues for more than 20 years. His 4th and newest book is The Return of The Sea Otter’

Todd shares stories of his adventures and outlines the natural history of these adorable marine mammals – often seen floating on their backs and holding hands – that play a vital role in maintaining the health of the kelp forest ecosystem.

Todd will talk about his new book and how he came to write it! To learn more about Todd, check out toddmcleish.com.
