Donation for $2,500 to Dublin Arts Council: Shifting Perspectives Exhibition to Support DownSyndrome Achieves

Jun 1, 2011 | Archive, Arts & Culture, Dublin Community Other

Photographs can evoke emotional responses that transcend human speech and the written word. Such is the impact of the images of Shifting Perspectives, a poignant photography exhibition that provides insight into the joy and wonder of what it is to be human – and living with Down syndrome. A selection of photographs, taken over a nine-year period by photographers in the United Kingdom, depicts the everyday interactions of people of all ages who are living with Down syndrome.

Dublin, Ohio-based DownSyndrome Achieves (DSA), an organization that provides a welcoming community of support for individuals and families living with Down syndrome, is partnering with the Dublin Arts Council to present the U.S. debut of Shifting Perspectives. The donation from the Dublin Foundation helps make the fall 2011 exhibition possible.
