The Brain Injury Association Peterborough Region has been operating since 1988.
BIAPR supports individuals in Peterborough, City of Kawartha Lakes, Haliburton, and Northumberland counties. The association has evolved into a dynamic organization that provides a range of supports to a clientele with diverse and complex needs. B.I.A.P.R. services are designed to form the basis of a comprehensive model of community support service delivery.
The ABI Adult Day Services offered in Peterborough and the City of Kawartha Lakes (Lindsay) are geared to adults with acquired brain injuries, who have varied needs and capabilities. B.I.A.P.R. is able to provide productive and meaningful activities for all participants. Photography provides our members a new and exciting way to communicate when finding words may be difficult.
2018 will be the 5th year that B.I.A.P.R. has participated in the SPARK Photo Festival; each year more and more of our members are involved in photography. Members look forward to showcasing their work in April during the Festival. Positive self-esteem is evident on the face of a member when they share their photograph(s). Through the lens of a camera they are able to capture images that are meaningful to them and share these with the greater community. This chance to engage in their community beyond B.I.A.P.R.’s doors is an opportunity for all our members to interact with people in new ways.
We continue to be involved in SPARK Photo Festival because photography and the images shared through our members’ eyes can transcend the challenges of living with an Acquired Brain Injury.
This year’s theme of “Reflections” offers us an opportunity to delve deeper into the importance of participating in the photo festival and being an active member of the community. By sharing our photographs we can show you how we see the world that we all live in. Through the camera lens we are all equal in ability.
As B.I.A.P.R.’s members, volunteers and staff – we look forward to sharing our images with our community again this year.
We look forward to sharing our images with you again this year.
