Brain Injury Association Peterborough Region (a registered business name of Four Counties Brain Injury Association) 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 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.
2019 will be the sixth year that B.I.A.P.R has participated in the SPARK Photo Festival; each year more and more of our members are embracing photography. Members look forward to showcasing their work in April during the Festival. Through the lens of a camera members are able to capture images that are meaningful to them. Our Community Exhibit exposes their creativity and abilities. This chance to engage in the community beyond B.I.A.P.R.’s doors is an opportunity for all our members to interact with people in new ways. The B.I.A.P.R. Open House allows for members to interact with the new people as they discuss their photography.
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.
B.I.A.P.R.’s theme for 2019 is “Connections” which offers us an opportunity to delve deeper what this word means for each member. By sharing our photographs we can show the diversity of the lives that we all live. 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. Come and share our vision of what “Connections” means to us.
