Invisible: Personal Stories from the Front Lines of Disability
I’d like to invite you to a screening of Invisible: Personal Stories from the Front Lines of Disability, a collection of short videos about the lived experience of Mainers with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families and caregivers.
The screening, followed by a conversation with the filmmakers, is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 9, in Callahan Hall at Lewiston Public Library, 200 Lisbon St, Lewiston.
This ongoing, multi-year project was developed, with grant funding from the Maine Developmental Disabilities Council, by Community Connect Maine, a non-profit organization dedicated to the vision that all people have the support they need, when they need it, to live a full life in their communities of choice. A barrier to achieving that goal is that many people with intellectual and developmental disabilities are invisible in their community. We hope to overcome that barrier by helping people in the disability community share their stories.
Admission to the screening is free, but attendees are strongly encouraged to register in advance at https://communityconnectme.org/events-and-workshops.
For more information, please contact Kim Humphrey at 207-754-3435 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Everyone has a story to tell, and stories are meant to be heard. Come hear our stories.
