Save the date for a red carpet event to celebrate the anniversary of the ADA on July 26th! This event will mark the release of new Public Service Announcements (PSAs) produced in partnership with Digital Eyes Film, and explore the role of media and motion pictures in framing (and reframing) our culturally embedded notions of disability. The PSAs are part of a larger campaign produced by the Institute for Human Centered Design's New England ADA Center, aiming to reframe our understanding of disability in the context of changing demographic patterns inherent to our region:
1. The largest percentage of people in the nation ages 45-64 or baby boomers (US Census, 2010).
2. Thousands of people newly in recovery due to the opioid epidemic; some with a full spectrum of behavioral health issues who are unaware of their civil rights under the ADA.
The timing is right to re:introduce people who are aging and those with mental health issues into the promise of the ADA.
Date: Wednesday July 26, 2017
Time: 3:00 PM - 4:30 PM
Where: Institute for Human Centered Design
