June 25 | Salsa in the Park - Deafblind Global Awareness
Blackstone Community Park, South End | 6 PM - 9 PM
One of the most marginalized population in the world is the DeafBlind. There has been progress in providing access to the arts for people with disabilities, but very little has been done to include the DeafBlind. To address this disparity, Kerry Thompson, a DeafBlind dancer and dance teacher, will be using salsa dance as a way to bridge the gap between the DeafBlind and the general community.
