A Matter of Access
Being disabled is no reason to stop doing what you love. Spark goes to the Magic Theatre for the world premiere of John Belluso's "The Rules of Charity," a play that considers the life of a disabled gay man. Then we head over to Richmond's NIAD (National Institute of Art and Disabilities), where developmentally disabled artists are finding new forms of expression, independence and dignity through this groundbreaking arts program. And, we visit with Alice Wingwall who relies on her visual memories when continuing to pursue her passion for photography even while battling with a blinding degenerative eye disease.
This program is not currently scheduled for broadcast.
