Upstream Arts is proud to offer Minnesota’s first arts-based Self-Advocacy classes for adults with disabilities! Piloted online during the pandemic to meet the unprecedented demand from our community, our Self-Advocacy classes offer a fun, creative, and interactive space for participants to strengthen their self-advocacy skills with their peers by using a range of the arts to explore topics related to informed choice and person-centered planning.
Our classes support individuals in:
- Strengthening their self-advocacy skills through self-expression and the arts
- Taking charge of the support they receive
- Communicating their boundaries and preferences
- Making and fostering meaningful, healthy relationships
Classes are open to all adults with disabilities 18+, including members of our community who are non-verbal or non-traditional communicators.
Fall 2021 classes begin October 4th and run through January 2022, with hybrid, online, and in-person class options! Learn more and register today!
