Webinar: Creativity in Dyslexia Advocacy: Using Art and Photography to Educate and Inspire

When longtime dyslexia advocate Cheri Rae was asked to become “The Dyslexia Lady” in her local school district, she figured she’d need to do more than just talk to young students to keep their attention. She began creating what she calls “Dyslexia Assemblage Art” to illustrate concepts and highlight individuals with dyslexia and literacy issues. The collection of unique art pieces has been exhibited in several venues and is currently on display at The Dyslexia Project community resource center in Santa Barbara.

And she has teamed with dyslexic photographer Monie deWit to create a photographic work-in-progress they call “One in Five: The Face of Dyslexia,” showcasing individuals with dyslexia in compelling images and their own words. Ranging from a seven-year-old homeschooled child to a 90-something philanthropist, the body of work reveals the diversity and wide range of those with dyslexia, and their insights about it.
In the webinar of January 10, Cheri will for the first time discuss her evolution as a dyslexia advocate—from mom to author to artist–and show many examples of her work and the inspiration behind each piece.

Speaker: Cherie Rae is the author of DyslexiaLand and more.
