Tell Your Story Through Better Together
Story Booth to Make Stop at Circles of Life Conference
The Wisconsin Board for People with Developmental Disabilities (BPDD) recently launched a new initiative, “Better Together: Sharing stories, sharing lives.” Better Together aims to increase public awareness and understanding of the ways people with developmental disabilities of all kinds contribute to community life. Throughout 2013, Better Together will celebrate the many ways the people of Wisconsin come together to support one another by collecting and sharing your stories.
You can tell your story now! BPDD is sounding the call for stories and anyone can participate. People who live with – or have been influenced by – someone with a developmental disability can visit the BPDD on Facebook to share their story and learn more. If you know someone who has a story to tell, please let them know about Better Together!
Also, BPDD will be collecting stories from around the state using a traveling story booth. Visitors to the booth can tell their story through words, pictures or video. Photos and stories will be shared on the BPDD’s Facebook page and videos will be posted on BPDD’s YouTube channel.
The story booth will be making a stop later this week at the Circles of Life Conference in Stevens Point. If you plan on attending the conference and would like to tell your story, contact Joe Luther at email@example.com. The story booth will also be at Family Fun Night during the conference, so be sure get your photo taken, too!
