VIU Celebrates International Day of People with Disability

This year VIU will mark the International Day of People with Disability by holding Popcorn and a Movie, December 3rd, Building 200, Room203, 1:30 – 3:30.

On behalf of Student Affairs, we invite you to grab a bag of popcorn, or some seasonal snacks, and join us to watch award winning film maker Bonnie Sherr Klein’s documentary Shameless, the Art of Disability (NFB, 2006). Packed with humour and raw energy, this film follows five surprising individuals with diverse disabilities as they create and present their own images of their disabilities. The movie will be followed by a discussion with a Student Panel.

By gathering together to celebrate this day, we can help to ensure inclusion for the more than 1,000 VIU students and more than 6 million Canadians living with disability, and we can contribute to positive change in our community. Show your support by wearing an International Day of Persons with Disability button available at Disability Access Services, Building 200, Room 214.
