Salt Lake Community College

Disability Awareness Week

Disability Awareness Week is coming to SLCC in September. Every year the Disability Resource Center hosts a weeklong event celebrating the disability experience. The overall goal is to help the SLCC community understand that disability is a natural part of the human experience. Past speakers have included comedians, musicians, accessibility engineers, doctors, and a Paralympic athlete. They have discussed everything from social justice, physical fitness and even sex.


The theme for this year is “Disability and the Arts”. All events will focus on how disability has influenced the art community. There will be a featured film from Sundance Film Festival titled Autism in Love, a painter will speak about her artwork and mental health, and the keynote speaker is a dancer who also works as an advocate within the Deaf community.  An Assistive Technology Fair will feature various technologies utilized by the disability community to access daily life. This interactive fair will feature 20 vendors from the community who will be highlighting innovative approaches to accessibility. Please come join the fun!
