March 2014 is Disability Awareness Month

Individuals, businesses and organizations across the state will be recognizing the abilities of people with disabilities during Disability Awareness month. The Indiana Governor’s Council for People with Disabilities has created a new campaign to help educate Hoosiers about disability-related issues and remind everyone of the importance of access, engagement and relationships in making all our communities better places to live.

While Disability Awareness Month continues to focus on inclusion for people with disabilities, the 2014 campaign theme, “Dream to Dare,” reminds us that if we want to have the communities of our dreams, we must work together to create communities that are sustainable, accessible, economically viable and encourage civic and social engagement for all. This year’s campaign materials use poetic text to help frame our attitudes toward what we all want to achieve – a community that is healthy, safe and friendly for all.

“We are very excited about the theme of this year’s campaign because encouraging all citizens to develop relationships and work toward common goals is of great importance as we strive to create sustainable and accessible communities for citizens of all ages and ethnicities, with and without disabilities,” said Suellen Jackson-Boner, Council Executive Director.

As in previous years, Disability Awareness Month 2014 will be celebrated with community-based activities carried out by thousands of advocates and people with disabilities throughout the state. Activities include mayoral proclamations, art contests and awareness campaigns in schools, government agencies and businesses.

If your organization would like to order free Disability Awareness materials from the Council, click here or contact Kim Dennison at Borshoff, (317) 631-6400 (voice); (317) 631-6499 (fax); or kim.dennison@borshoff.biz (e-mail).

Disability Themed Short Film

In celebration of Disability Awareness month, Stone Belt Arc, IU Cinema, and Sprout Film Festival invite you to experience a short film program related to the field of developmental disabilities on Tuesday, March 4, 2014, at 7:00 p.m. at the IU Cinema, 1213 West 7th street in Bloomington.

People with developmental disabilities as subjects and performers remain marginalized in the media. The Sprout Film Festival aims to raise their profile by showcasing works of all genres featuring this population. 
 
By presenting films of artistry and intellect, the festival hopes to reinforce accurate portrayals of people with developmental disabilities and expose the general public to important issues facing this population. The goal is an enjoyable and enlightening experience that will help break down stereotypes, promoting a greater acceptance of differences and awareness of similarities.
 
If you're interested in discussing the films afterward, head over to Lennie's Restaurant and Brewpub conveniently located at 1795 East 10th Street,  just around the corner from the IU Cinema. Show your ticket stub for a complimentary Mini-Indulgence courtesy of Lennie's. This event is free, but ticketed. Get tickets at the IU Auditorium box office during regular hours or at the IU Cinema door 30 minutes prior to the screening.
