Join us on December 3, 2018 as we wrap up Project EveryBODY 2018 with PEBCelebrates Live! Vancouver’s annual celebration of the International Day of Persons with Disabilities combined with The Film and Performing Arts Festival. It’s Vancouver’s FREE community celebration and with something for EveryBODY, this is a celebration you cannot miss!
Gathering dozens of local artists and drawing hundreds of people each year, PEBCelebrates Live! is an important platform for emerging and established artists of diverse abilities to express their creative voice and share their stories with one another, and with the broader community. This is done in order to change common perceptions about abilities and disabilities.
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.
This event will also have VocalEye live description for people with vision loss.
As the event get’s closer, we will be updating this page with event specifics. Stay tuned for more information!
