2nd annual Art in the Dark event in Russell
Back by popular demand, the 2nd annual Art in the Dark fundraising event in Russell will be held this upcoming Saturday, October 20!
Presented by the Lions Club of Russell, Art in the Dark’s main goal is to raise funds to support individuals living with deafblindness and to support programs such as DeafBlind Ontario Services’ Community Services – Sensory Exploration Arts (SEA) program. Through this program, participants experience monthly themes through their senses and then express their interpretation of the activity through visual art, music, drama, and dance.
During the Russell event, participants will be able to join DeafBlind Ontario Services and experience the artistic process while undergoing a simulation exercise, wearing earplugs and an eye mask. By using the sense of touch, they will interact with art in ways that they may not have before. This exercise aims to provide a better understanding of deafblindness.
Tickets for the Art in the Dark Russell event are currently on sale. For more information and tickets, those interested can visit www.deafblindontario.com or call 1-855-340-3267 ext. 289.
