People with Disabilities are making great strides as are the opportunities for them to participate in the community just like everyone else. We see people with disabilities running successful small businesses, competitively participating in sporting events, writing books, creating commercially viable art and basically everything that those typically-abled do and take for granted daily. What we don’t see regularly is a way to recognize and learn about these people and opportunities.
Enter the Exceptional Experiences Expo. One day to celebrate the people and opportunities that aren’t letting disabilities stop them from living their lives to the fullest. Our goal is to showcase these people and opportunities to a larger audience. Maybe educate the larger community about the resources that are available. Exceptional Entrepreneurs, community groups, sports leagues, performance groups, artists and others.
Our short term goal for the first E2 Expo is to promote and execute a successful event. To that end we’ve decided to invite those who we feel are making a serious impact to participate in year one. With the large amount of people and groups this will be a tough decision and we will try to accommodate as many as we can but even with the generous support of The Museum of Disability History, space will still be limited.
The expo will be held at the Museum of Disability History at 3826 Main Street, Buffalo NY, 14226 on Saturday, October 13th from 10 AM to 3 PM. Our website, www.EEexpo.net is scheduled to launch soon and will be filled with news, social media links and updates.
