The Arc of Clarion and Venango Counties Inc., through the support of a Golden Opportunity Grant from the PA Developmental Disabilities Council, recently produced a short film entitled The Own Voices Project. The project was developed to educate professionals and the public on issues faced by people with disabilities.
The project actively involved people with disabilities in the development of the film in which most of the scenarios represented are portrayed by actors who experience disabilities.
Luanne Zacherl, Executive Director for The Arc of Clarion and Venango Counties said, “It is important that we respond by enabling and empowering people who experience disabilities to be a part of the development and presentation of media that will be used to educate others on the issues that they as people with disabilities feel are important. “The Own Voices Project" can be viewed on YouTube at: https://youtu.be/vbvDMydN1KU
