Unmasking Brain Injury
The North Dakota Brain Injury Network is excited to launch the Unmasking Brain Injury project. The purpose of this project is to not only create awareness for brain injury, but to also give the survivors a voice. The project allows individuals with brain injury to create an art mask to tell their story as a means to educate others of what it is like to live with a brain injury. It also gives brain injury survivors an outlet to show others that those living with this disability are like anyone else. By combining therapy, art, and advocacy, this project presents an entirely unique perspective on life with brain injury for survivors, care givers, and professionals.
Starting in January 2017, the North Dakota Brain Injury Network will be hosting multiple mask making events around North Dakota. The completed masks will be on display at Brain Injury Awareness Day at the Capitol in Bismarck on March 23, 2017 and at the annual Mind Matters Conference at the Radisson in Bismarck on March 24 and 25, 2017.
If you are interested in making a mask or holding an event at your location (facility, support group, community organization, school, or other location) call us at 1-855-866-1884.
