Venue: Streaming Cafe
Every month, Streaming Cafe displays the works from different kinds of artists from the Okanagan. For the month of April, Cool Arts will be featured with a show called “Diversability”. The works will be on display from April 5th-30th and there will be an opening on Wednesday, Aprill 11th at the Streaming Cafe (596 Leon Ave.) from 5 – 8 p.m.
Cool Arts is a non-profit society that is dedicated to providing art opportunities for adults with developmental disabilities or diversabilities.
This show is called “DIVERSABILITY” ; recent works based on a campaign by local self-advocate Shelly Decoste who is campaigning to have the word “disability” changed to “divers ability”.
MORE ABOUT COOL ARTS:
Cool Arts is dedicated to providing fine arts opportunities for adults with developmental disabilities living in the Central Okanagan.
We believe everyone should have the opportunity to express themselves through the arts.
We believe that disabilities should not interfere with this choice.
Our vision is to create opportunities, to make art, to take classes and learn, to be in a supportive fine arts environment, to exhibit or perform, to be part of the larger arts community.
