Georgia Council on Developmental Disabilities Storytelling Project
L’Arche Atlanta is partnering with the Georgia Council on Developmental Disabilities (GCDD) to lead the GCDD Storytelling Project. The goal of the project is to educate and influence legislators around issues that affect Georgians with disabilities through their stories and photographs. The GCDD Storytelling Project aims to collect 75 stories representing the experience of individuals living with a developmental disability in Georgia. This collection of stories and pictures will include at least one individual from each of Georgia’s 56 State Senate Districts. L’Arche will be collecting stories to support GCDD’s efforts to amplify the voices and stories of people with developmental disabilities in Georgia. For this year-long project L’Arche has teamed up with project managers Resergens Impact Consulting, content consultant Beate Sass, photographers Lynsey Weatherspoon and Hayle Anne, and story tellers Shannon Turner and MoiraBucciarelli. Think you or someone you know might have a story that would be good for this project?
