INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES

                          

On Thursday, Nov. 30 from 6pm-8pm Borderless Arts Tennessee (formerly VSA TN) will partner with Sumner County Tourism to celebrate the International Day of Persons with Disabilities. Since 1992, the United Nations International Day of Persons with Disabilities (IDPD) has been celebrated around the world.  The activities that will take place in Gallatin will be showcased by the United Nations across the globe.

 

The evening will be filled with a variety of activities including performances by Drew Basham (Young Soloist),  Sign Club Choir, Project 22 choir, Dulcimer Choir, and the Movement Connection dance program.  There will also be art on display that has been made in partnership by art students at Beech High School and students with disabilities at Rutherford Academy.  Some of the art will be part of an international exchange with students with disabilities in South Africa.

National Ornament Project

 In 1923, President Calvin Coolidge pressed the button that would light the first National Christmas Tree. Since that time, this tradition has continued and grown to include a national celebration. In addition, smaller live trees representing the 50 states, five territories, and the District of Columbia, form a Pathway of Peace.   Each year, the National Parks Foundation asks each state to create 12 ornaments that will represent their State on their designated tree. Borderless Arts Tennessee (formerly VSA TN) was honored to coordinate this effort in partnership with the Tennessee Arts Commission, Tennessee School for the Blind and Middle Tennessee State University. Certificates for each participant were provided by Rep. Dawn White.  First Lady Crissy Haslam prepared personal notes of thanks for each participant. The ornaments were created under the artistic direction of Yvette Cowden of Hendersonville on the campus of Middle Tennessee State University on Wednesday, Oct. 18. Six students from the Tennessee School for the Blind and six members of Borderless Arts Tennessee’s Teapot Diplomat program created teapot themed ornaments with the assistance of MTSU students. The teapot theme was selected due to a new program of Borderless Arts Tennessee, called Teapot Diplomats. This program teaches individuals with disabilities new art techniques and then encourages them to use the products created to raise awareness of the talents and abilities of people with disabilities.
