Part 1 Disabled Artists' Collective Kinetic Light: Dancer Laurel Lawson hosted by Carden Wyckoff Transcript https://rb.gy/bgmlyd Who is Laurel Lawson?

Laurel began her professional dance career with Full Radius Dance in 2004 and is part of the disabled artists’ collective Kinetic Light, where in addition to choreographic collaboration and performance she contributes design and leads technical innovation, including the Audimance project, a revolutionary app centering non-visual audiences, and the Access ALLways initiative.

Beautiful People 501c3 Adaptive Sports with Founder Peter Ladka

A single thought popped into Peter Ladka's mind in 2006 of 'I wonder how the kid in a wheelchair plays tee-ball' while sitting on the sidelines watching his daughter play. That 'silly little idea' as he calls it turned into creating the nonprofit Beautiful People which provides children and young adults with disabilities the ability to participate in sports adaptively in Orange County NY. They provide baseball, indoor and outdoor soccer and basketball. Volunteers can be a ‘buddy’ that pair up one-on-one with the athletes for as much help as is required for each player. Tune into the journey behind creating the organization and how it is thriving today.
