With its theme, Future is Accessible, Independent Living Vernon is putting on a festival art show in honour of International Day of Persons Living with Disabilities.
The half-dozen or so artists participating are local people living with disabilities, including Louise Cain.
“The event is a good way of showing that people with disabilities have incredible talents,” Cain said. “It is pretty empowering.”
Independent Living hosted an open house until 4 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 3, and there is a daily art festival on from 12:30-4 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday, Dec. 4 and 5, that’s open and free of charge for the public to come in and admire the artwork.
“We have a really broad array of exhibits ranging from paintings to drawings, photography and poems,” ILV executive director Laura Hockman said.
The festival and open house is being held in Room 107 at the People Place, 3402-27th Avenue.
