Brain Injury Association Peterborough Region (a registered business name of Four Counties Brain Injury Association) has been operating since 1988 and celebrates our 35-year anniversary in 2023.
BIAPR supports individuals who are living with the effects of an Acquired Brain Injury 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 needs. BIAPR services purposefully form the basis of a comprehensive model of community support service delivery.
The Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) Day Services offered in Peterborough and the City of Kawartha Lakes (Lindsay) and virtually across all four counties are geared to adults with acquired brain injuries, who have varied needs and capabilities. BIAPR engages our members in productive and meaningful programming activities. Photography provides our members a new and exciting way to communicate when finding words may be difficult. For others it is a way to find community and expression in unique and innovative ways.
2023 will be the ninth year that BIAPR has participated in the SPARK Photo Festival. We are proud of this participation. Every year our interest in photography grows. Members look forward to again showcasing their work in April in our window display and will be hosting an Open House on April 15th. The BIAPR Open House offers our members the chance to engage with the community beyond BIAPR’s doors. Our Community Exhibit exposes their creativity and abilities and is an opportunity for all our members to interact with people in new ways.
We continue to be involved in the SPARK Photo Festival each year because photography and the images shared through our members’ eyes can transcend the challenges of living with an Acquired Brain Injury. Through the camera lens we are all equal in ability.
BIAPR’s theme for 2023 is “Water” which offers us an opportunity to “dive” deeper into what water means to each member. By sharing our photographs, we can show the diversity of the lives that we all live.
As BIAPR’s members, volunteers, and staff – we look forward to sharing our images with our community again this year and are excited to return to our in person Open House.
