On October 12, 2012 at 2:00pm, SSILC Moose Jaw will be hosting the second film screening in our series, Shameless: The ART of Disability. This film, by producer Tracey Friessen and with the National Film Board of Canada, follows a group of artists with disabilities as they create their self-representations through art and expose the challenges and beauty in their lives. A discussion will follow the film.
This film screening is a precursor to an exciting event that will be held on Saturday, October 27, 2012 at 1:00pm. Listen to Dis’ Voice, a performance collective made up of people living with a diversity of disabilities, will be hosting a free workshop and performance. All are welcome to experience creative play and self-expression in a safe and supportive environment!

SSILC's Artist in Residence and visiting artists offer regular workshops at the SSILC resource centre and in the community. Click here for more information about the SSILC Arts program.
The interests of SSILC members and consumers, and the issues that concern them, are at the heart of the forums we have hosted. The resource centre is available for the community to come together to discuss concerns, and to share ideas and peer support.
