Video by Hayley Glossop of Rainbow Notations. You can check out more posts about this project on our project blog. The Community Mapping sessions were sponsored by an award from the BC Ideas folks, in Community Living Innovation. In this project Shelley Nessman and I are going to three communities to ask self advocates with intellectual disabilities: where do you make a contribution? where would you be missed? where are you welcomed in the ways you want to be? After a day together, and a lot of drawing and talking, we clean up the room and they host a reception of civic leaders that they’ve invited, who want to know what matter to them and how they can best support that. It’s a lovely process. Vancouver’s Community Mapping will be in October we hope.
