Candy Chang – my new favourite TED talk :) Before I die I want to…

I really love public art, and particularly this new variety of public art as community development, which I’ve done a bit of work studying.   It’s probably one of the reasons I like graphic facilitation.   I did a project in a community development class that had to do with this amazing organization, Broken City Lab.   And one of my favourite projects for some time has been this “I Wish This Was…” concept, although I didn’t really pay attention to who had organized it – I think I was just busy at the time…

But it was, of course, Candy Chang.   Her website is here and her project site is here.

Director of Research, Training and Development, Spectrum Society for Community Living. As well as being responsible for in-house training and research on best practices in the field of helping people with disabilities organize their supports, I support self advocacy groups, contract to provide training and workshops to other agencies and groups and facilitate inclusive research groups. I am the author/illustrator of three books, co-editor of a new anthology for 2012, and co-editor of Spectrum Press. My passion is creating networks of best practice leaders in our field to share person-centred alternatives in how people with disabilities can be facilitated to live lives where their gifts are necessary components in their communities. I am currently half way through a Masters degree in Interdisciplinary studies, focusing on Equity and Adult Education, and particularly on how people with intellectual disabilities may be supported in participatory leadership groups.
