Through biography, self portraiture, direct quotes and colourful art reproductions, this book captures the personal and collective journeys of self-discovery as this group of artists explored human rights, citizenship and disability through conversation and art. The images and quotes deliver powerful messages.
The book is available for purchase at a cost of $25.00 through the Nina Haggerty Centre for the Arts (plus $5.00 fee for shipping and handling for mail orders). Or purchase the DVD (Through the Eyes of Artists) for $99.00 and receive a copy of the book FREE.
