Events for Disability Awareness Month
The Fishers ADA/Disability Roundtable and the city of Fishers are organizing a month-long campaign to build awareness and support inclusion of people with disabilities by hosting a wide range of events.
All-month long, artwork will be exhibited on flagpole banners throughout downtown Fishers by resident Margo Vallone. The message conveyed by Vallone’s artwork is to see the person first, without limits, and that not all disabilities are visible.
A Visual and Performing Arts Reception will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. on March 3. Attendees will see performances by the Fishers Community Chorus and Vibrations, and the Indiana School for the Deaf performing arts troupe, which utilizes American Sign Language, song interpretation, dance and drums.
A Long Night of Laughs, an adult comedy show from 7 to 9 p.m. on March 10, will benefit Special Olympics of Hamilton County. The show at Pinheads features national comedian Scott Long whose comedy is inspired by his loving interactions with his daughter with autism.
Free admission to reception. Location: 1 Municipal Dr., Fishers. Admission to comedy show: $20 in advance, $25 at the door. Location: Britton Hall at Pinheads, 13825 Britton Park Rd., Fishers.
