I would help start the Metro DisAbilities Coalition in Louisville, Ky; assisted with the development of a state 501.c3 of Mental Health Customers (though the organization no longer exists), stage the first art shows at our conferences, and earn awards, (even being invited to the White House), the reality was the business, political and religious community seemingly could reject the option for economic development. I would write an article for the DisAbility Rag, that would attempt to capture the idea for a disability sensitive city (that even Justin Dart alluded to) but without presence at the board room table, the inclusive concept seems to be fleeting. Now, I am in a Low Res MFA program at SAIC.
