12janalldayLook! Forward Photography Exhibition

Event Details

The Look! Forward Photography exhibit showcases the beauty and strength of children, teens and young adults who are living rich, full lives despite their disability or special healthcare need.

This year, thanks to the generosity of 39 South Carolina photographers, the exhibit featured 49 children, teens and adults. Family Connection developed the LOOK! project in response to often heard comments from the families we serve. “I wish that the world would really see my child and not just their disability!”

Family Connection has a long history of  serving families of children with disabilities and special healthcare needs. In 2015, we became the Parent Training and Information Center for South Carolina. There is a Center in every state to provide information and training to parents of those with disabilities, ages birth through 26.

Event Details

Take a break from your day and explore the world of Yoga at the Morris Center! This hour-long yoga session will be provided by yoga instructor Kelsey Lee, who will guide the class through a series of gentle and relaxing yoga poses.

Kelsey loves yoga so much it’s infectious. It’s as if she just can’t stop doing it, talking about it, reading about it, writing about it, teaching it, and applying it to everything she does.

Her goal is to make yoga challenging and bring greater awareness to both body and mind. She also tries to keep it light hearted, because life is too short to be serious all the time!

Beginners are welcome! Please bring your own yoga mat and wear comfortable clothes!
