Interact Theater provides a place for performers and artists with a wide range of disabilities from Down’s syndrome to traumatic brain injuries. Playwright Dawn Brodey says, “These are valuable artists.” Each of them has gifts to bring to the process of creating a performance. How easy is it for you to see the gifts other people have to offer? Would you write somebody off or discount their worth or value because of a difference or disability? What might you be missing out on from doing that?
Help create art in a way that will increase someone else’s confidence and self-worth. This can be as simple as asking someone to contribute, and then listening respectfully to their opinions.
