Each March, the National Association of Councils on Developmental Disabilities (NACDD), and our partners work together to create a social media campaign that highlights the many ways in which people with and without disabilities come together to form strong, diverse communities.The campaign seeks to raise awareness about the inclusion of people with developmental disabilities in all facets of community life, as well as awareness of the barriers that people with disabilities still sometimes face in connecting to the communities in which they live.
This year the NACDD has selected Eileen Schofield as the feature artist, and creator of the DD Awareness Month Image. Eileen is a very talented artist who uses markers as her medium of choice to create beautiful, bold artwork that reflects her passion for bright colors. You can find more of Eileen’s one-of-a-kind art pieces at Art-Enables https://art-enables.org/artist/?id=44867.
