Flyer for concert

The Power of Disability reminds us of what we have in common – the power to create a good life for ourselves and for others no matter what the world has in store for us.

– Michael J. Fox

The quote above is on the cover of Al’s new book The Power of Disability, which celebrates the artistic, political, literary, scientific and other achievements of people with disabilities. Instead of a book launch, he was planning a series of concerts across the country to highlight local artists, entertainers and performers with disabilities. Then the corona virus hit. He cancelled those events and adapted the concept to our current reality.

Now we’re thrilled to invite you to an intimate, online concert. We want to celebrate the power of disability through music, storytelling, and humour. And bring joy and laughter into our lives.

We’d love for you to join us from the comfort of your home.

Performers include Amy Amantea (Actor), Christa Couture (Musician, Writer, Broadcaster), Maxim Fomitchev (Mime, Clown & Physical Comedian), Sarah Jickling (Singer/Songwriter), Greg ’77 Spokes’ Labine (Singer/Songwriter),  David Roche (Humorist) and Kristina Shelden (Singer/Songwriter).

Our host will be actor and playwright James Sanders.

Ticket proceeds will go to Planned Lifetime Advocacy Network. They’ve been helping Canadians stay socially connected and emotionally supported for thirty years. And have ramped up their work during this virus.

We look forward to seeing you on May 9th to celebrate the #powerofdisability.
