Countering Stigma Through Storytelling

Audience watching speaker on stage

The Latino Cultural Center and the Disability Cultural Center were in for a real treat on Wednesday, April 4th when Erasing the Distance and the Erasing the Distance Artistic Company came for a visit. We had the privilege of watching a talented group of actors bring to life the stories of real people with disabilities and the stigmas they overcame. Erasing the Distance: Countering Stigma Through Storytelling was part of the ongoing Spaces for Wellness project – a collaboration between the Centers for Cultural Understanding and Social Change.
