Don't miss this powerful film.
Don't miss this powerful film.
Dear Friend, 
Join us tonight, October 2, from 6-8pm for a free screening of Intelligent Lives, presented in partnership with Highland Park Public Library. This powerful documentary will be followed by a short panel discussion facilitated by Julie Guidry, Executive Director of Upstream Arts.   
Actor Chris Cooper (narrator of Intelligent Lives film) with his wife and their son, Jesse.
The film features three young adults with intellectual disabilities- Micah, Naieer, and Naomie- who challenge perceptions of intelligence as they navigate high school, college, and the workforce. 
Intelligent Lives is a catalyst to transform the label of intellectual disability from a life sentence of isolation into a life of possibility for the most systematically segregated people in America.  
With abundant thanks for all that you do,
Julie, Matt, Bree, and everyone at Upstream Arts
