This project is supported by the Comme les Autres association, which supports people with motor disabilities following a life-threatening accident. Its objectives:
- promote the people supported who wish to testify about 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 feel better about themselves. accept with their chair.
- Changing the way people look at 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 views on disability; arouse the curiosity of Lyonnais and Rennais, contribute to there being exchanges, questioning on the motor handicap.With a photo exhibition and artistic animations (armchair dance and wheelchair course), we reach as much the children, as the adolescents or adults.
