Summer Saturdays at Bearspaw is a market held at the Bearspaw Lifestyle Centre which values people and individuals of all walks of life. We are planning a Disability Day Market on June 10, 2023 from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm.
Disability is something not commonly spoken about in our everyday lives and many of us lack knowledge or understanding of the challenges and opportunities created by this type of diversity.
Similarly, it can happen that people identifying as disabled may not be aware of the resources and opportunities available to them.
We have a few market vendors with children that have disabilities – this has opened our eyes and our hearts to the different kind of normality that living with disability creates.
Through the Disability Day market, we would like to provide inspiration and education regarding where to find resources and support as well as to learn how rewarding it is to work with, teach and be a part of a disabled individual’s life.
