Usher Syndrome Society Educational Events
Usher Syndrome Society Educational Events are the driving force behind the Usher Syndrome Society mission, offering both volunteers and participants the opportunity to learn about Usher syndrome and Art that can inspire change.
Every person has a story about overcoming obstacles; an illness, a disability, emotional or environmental challenges. At our events, we tell “our story about Usher syndrome” by showing a video,displaying portraits with their stories, and talking about what it feels like to have Usher syndrome. We then encourage participants to share their personal feelings by drawing and a pop up gallery is created. This gallery represents empathy and awareness in action.
Educational Events can be held anywhere: in parks, schools, libraries, homes, corporations, etc. We encourage anyone interested in our mission to consider hosting an educational event. The Usher Syndrome Society will make this easy for you so contact us for more details.
There are two important reasons to have an Educational Event:
- Raise awareness for Usher syndrome
- Raise funds for Usher syndrome
