“A person with a disability is defined, "Like the Others", by his personality”
PORTRAITS DE PERSONNES COMME LES AUTRES
AUGUST 2021 | 33 PORTRAITS
This project is supported by the Comme les Autres association, which supports people with motor disabilities following a life-threatening accident.
Her goals :
- promote the people supported who wish to share their experience and raise awareness of disability
- work on self-image, allow our beneficiaries to come to terms with their image, to regain self-confidence, to enjoy themselves again and to accept themselves with their chair.
- change the view on disability
Through photo portraits of members of our community (beneficiaries with disabilities and able-bodied participants) in public space, we want to highlight people and not their disabilities; they are above all "Like the Others". We will thus present personal stories and statements, and more specifically that of our community.
We would like to invite passers-by to question their view of disability; arouse the curiosity of Lyonnais and Rennais, contribute to there being exchanges, questioning on the motor handicap.
With a photo exhibition and artistic activities (armchair dance and armchair trail), we reach out to children, adolescents and adults alike.
