The theme of this is exhibit, “Make the Truth Irresistible” is from an Audre Lorde quote, “June Jordan once said something which is just wonderful. I’m paraphrasing her – that her function as a poet was to make revolution irresistible. Well ok, that is the function of us all, as creative artists, is to make the truth irresistible.”

· Identify the impact of art interventions on wellbeing.
· Demonstrate the power of creative writing, art, and photography to raising awareness about the experiences of having a disability in America.
