Celebrating Abilities 2018
September 13, 2018 • 5-8 PM
Rochester Civic Theatre
This year featuring “Unmasking Brain Injury in Minnesota.” Experience a one-of-a-kind exhibition of lives behind the masks of disability. Read their stories, see over 200 masks and witness the results of art, therapy and advocacy.
Few people understand the personal impact brain injury can have. Its effects often are subtle and difficult to express. In March of 2016, the Minnesota Brain Injury Alliance began the Unmasking Brain Injury in Minnesota project to help individuals affected by brain injury design masks to communicate their unique perspectives and altered outlooks. ABC is proud to partner with the Alliance to bring the project to Rochester for Celebrating Abilities 2018.
Behind each mask is a person that’s been touched by brain injury as a survivor, parent, sibling, friend, neighbor or co-worker. Individual stories of Minnesotans with brain injury will be highlighted along with their masks.
