UN International Day of Persons with Disabilities
December 3, 2018 | Vancouver, BC
Join us on December 3, 2018 for PEBCelebrates Live! Vancouver’s annual celebration of the International Day of Persons with Disabilities combined with The Film and Performing Arts Festival. This unrestrained celebration helps speak to the numerous and diverse abilities of those who live with disabilities. This FREE event will not only be a platform for gathering local artists but it will also help display the creative voices and stories of those who attend, as well as with the broader community. This is done in order to change common perceptions about abilities and disabilities. However, it will be done through; music, art, performance, comedy or etc. There will be something for EveryBODY, this is a celebration you cannot miss!
Also, new this year we have two presentations in the auditorium in collaboration with the Government of Canada
From 1:30 – 2:30 the Public Service Commission is hosting a session about careers with the Government of Canada & Accommodation for Persons with Disabilities. Learn about different job opportunities for students, graduates and general jobseekers, and familiarize yourself with accommodation measures for persons with functional limitations.
From 2:30 – 3:30 Public Services and Procurement Canada will host a session on accessibility and federal services this session is designed for people who are already public servants and members of the public. To become a more inclusive public service, the Government of Canada is exploring many facets of what that needs to mean. Come and listen to thought-provoking stories of lived experience, and learn how you can contribute.
