In preparation for our coverage of the DisArt Festival, we brought in some folks from DisArt and Disability Advocates of Kent County to get our Rapidian and GRTV volunteers ready to report on disability with respect and education.

The evening's event was a packed house, but for those who weren't able to attend, we've included the full presentation here in video format. 

For those interested in helping the Community Media Center and its departments The Rapidian and GRTV cover the upcoming Festival, please contact The Rapidian to learn about opportunities and collaboration needs with other citizen journalists.
