We are thrilled to be partners in bringing The Ability Exhibit to Traverse City. The exhibit will be at the Dennos Museum Center Oct. 18-20. Big thanks to The Dennos Museum Center, Northwestern Michigan College Disability Support Services and Disability Network for helping with this exhibit.
This traveling exhibit, developed by grad students at Saint Louis University, features 10 interactive stations designed to build awareness of people with disabilities and the disability movement. There’s also specialized training designed to educate teachers, staff and students on how they can be allies for disability inclusion.
As part of ACT-GT’s sponsorship of this important exhibit, we’ll be hosting a FREE Funday Sunday at the Dennos Oct. 18, 1-4 p.m. You can tour The Ability Exhibit, the museum’s Discovery Gallery and any of the other exhibits absolutely free. Then join us, along with artist Kat Brown, for art activities. It’s all part of the free Funday Sunday Oct. 18.
We’ll also be hosting a leadership lunch and a breakfast and tour for faculty and staff at Northwestern Michigan College. For more information on either of these events, Funday Sunday or The Ability Exhibit, click here to see the flier, call Dayna Ryan, 947-1278 or email her.
