(SEADD) Self Expression for Adults with Developmental Disabilities

Monday, September 21st to Friday, December 4th, 2020 (ET)

About

SEADD is a student-led organization that strives to develop a creative space where adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities and Brown students can come together to express themselves. We partner with the Arc of Blackstone Valley; we are also a part of the Brown Swearer Center's Community Corps program. Through our weekly workshops, we create meaningful art that fosters fulfilling relationships and brings together diverse communities.This semester, we will be entirely online, and we look forward to trying new things and learning along the way. Online workshops will be conducted for one hour every week over zoom. They will consist of around three Brown students with a handful of adults, supported by Arc of Blackstone Valley staff. In the past, workshop groups have created anything from abstract art to elaborate plays. Furthermore, volunteers will attend hour-long general body meetings to plan for workshops and discuss strategies. Times will be determined based on volunteers' schedules.Additionally, SEADD is hoping to host conversations on disability activism and justice. We will hear from experts in the field, read about current issues, and discuss what can be done. These sessions are open to the public, and interested students are encouraged to attend!If you have any questions, or would just like to chat, please reach me, Soham Kale, at brown.seadd@gmail.com!!For more information on what it is like to be a volunteer, please follow this document that was created by SEADD and the Arc of Blackstone Valley: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1WD5tyBeg_SiCPAAIfoVIq5qf3PQZNMv_/view?usp=sharing
