Replay: Ability Central at the Outsized Impact Film Festival
Virtual Event | December 14th, 2023 at 2:00pm – 3:00pm ET
Join Ability Central Program Officer Jessie Galloway at a replay of the short film we created for Exponent Philanthropy’s Outsized Impact Film Festival last year.
Exponent Philanthropy hosts the film festival at their Annual Conference, highlighting the work that foundations do. Join us online on December 14th to replay two short films from a past festival, including our submission Everyone Can Communicate.
In this short film, we share the stories of staff, board, and advisory group members. We hope to break down stereotypes and bring awareness to the overwhelming need to ensure communication and information access for those who are Deaf, disabled, and neurodivergent, because 1 in 6 people will have or acquire a communication disability in their lifetime.
Jessie Galloway will be speaking after the replay, adding insight into the creation and purpose of the film. While this event is intended for Exponent members and foundation staff, anyone is welcome to join.
You can also catch a replay of another short film, Authentic Workspaces for BIPOC Individuals, presented by Fallon Peterson of The Raymond John Wean Foundation.
