Our Stories / 28 March - 26 April 2009

"our stories" challenges Kiwis to get to know people with disabilities - to see the person first, rather than the disability.

Based on photographs by Hanne Johnsen and Glenn Busch's book, The Man With No Arms & Other Stories, the project is run in partnership between IHC and CCS Disability Action.

The exhibition sends the message that people with disabilities have a right to participate in the community, to share in family life, have a job and ambitions.

"our stories" includes workshops for schools and information evenings for employers and service, sport and recreation groups.

IHC and CCS Disability Action have formed a two-year partnership to take the exhibition to audiences around the country.  www.ourstories.co.nz
