Special Guest: Beate Sass presents “Real Stories, Real People”
April 19, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Decatur Presbyterian will host local photographer Beate Sass on April 19th at 6:30pm for its Wednesday night program. Beate will present her project entitled “Real Stories, Real People.”
The project is a compilation of photo essays that depict the lives of individuals living with a developmental disability. Her aim is to bring to light all the ways people with developmental disabilities have real dreams that involve furthering their education, getting a job, living independently and creating lasting friendships, and to educate about the challenges posed to these people. Support through a Medicaid waiver is often needed to fulfill these dreams.
Real Stories, Real People provides intimate portrayals of lives well lived as a result of resources provided by a Medicaid waiver and lives lacking meaning or challenged by severe hardship due to inadequate support. Real Stories, Real People was created to educate the public and policymakers about the value of investing in the future of their fellow Georgians living with a developmental disability.
Before the presentation, Beate’s photographs will be presented on the walls in the McGeachy building on the second floor, beginning April 1st.
