Events focus on those with disabilities

A series of events will take place this Saturday, Dec. 7, aimed at increasing awareness of those with disabilities. The events include a documentary film, a panel discussion and a potluck dinner. The events celebrate the International Day of Persons with Disabilities, which was Tuesday, Dec. 3.

The film, Shooting Beauty, tells the story of a fashion photographer who discovered “a hidden world of beauty” at a center for the disabled. It will be shown at 2 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. on Saturday at the Little Art Theatre.

“I hope this film strikes a chord with artists, the disabled and those with open hearts,” said event organizer Debra Williamson, the mother of a son with developmental disabilities.

In between the two showings, a panel discussion on inclusion will take place at the Little Art. The panel will include Julie Williams of the Wright State University School of Professional Psychology, who is a dwarf; several local parents of disabled children; local school nurse Michelle Brown; and J.K. Laurens, who has worked with veterans who have post traumatic stress syndrome.

A potluck dinner will follow the afternoon events at 6 p.m. at the First Presbyterian Church. Everyone is invited.
