The Art of Me
Upstream Arts is proud to present The Art of Me, a collaboration with Hammer Residences, Lifeworks, and Opportunity Partners, at St. Catherines Universitys Frey Theater.

Performances are at 6pm on Wednesday, June 28th, and Thursday, June 29th. A post-show conversation will take place on Thursday, June 29th for the audience, community and artists to discuss the show and current events related to the community.

Our inspiration for this show:
In light of recent legislative changes, the disability community is experiencing major transition. In response, Upstream Arts has partnered with three prominent adult disability service providers to explore the unanswered questions of how our world can be more inclusive, and how we're all responsible for finding those answers. What does inclusion look like for the nearly 20% of Americans living with a disability? In truth, probably a bit different for each person. Come enjoy an evening of all-new performances, as artists with disabilities share their voices, talents, and perspectives!

ASL Interpreted by Phyllis Genest-Stein & Sarah Brown

Approximate Run Time: 2 hours with an intermission
