"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
