Eli Goes to Montreal

Eli poses with his photos at the art expo

One of our students, Eli,¬†participated in the very first Creatability Art Expo in Montreal, which was a juried show for people with disabilities who demonstrate incredible passion for the arts. Eli’s photos attracted quite a crowd and sold almost half of the photos he brought with him!

The participants in this show demonstrated incredible talent and there was a fair amount of publicity following the show, with newspaper articles and a TV profile.

Eli, with the support of his teachers in his business class and the help of many friends, was able to fundraise enough funds to make the prints and pay for some of the travel expenses.

His next show will hopefully be in the Manchester area. Stay tuned for future announcements!
