From Dreams to Reality: International Perspectives on Transitions at the ‘my life’ Exhibition

Some of the works from  our workshops are part of the international exhibition at the University of Minnesota. The exhibition is available online; see the link below.

The works capture expectations, dreams, wishes, and the everyday reality reflected in life stories through drawings, narratives, and stylized self-portraits. Link to the exhibition:

We are excited to announce the long-awaited opening of my life, an exhibition by transitions students from three different countries. 

my life is in collaboration with three transition projects, two of which are international. The third collaborator is a Project of National Significance focused on the transition of students with intellectual and developmental disabilities in Minnesota, led by Renáta Tichá. Youth with intellectual and developmental disabilities from Minnesota, Singapore, and the Czech Republic will share photos of their transition from school to adult life. The photos are a window into their daily lives and their dreams for the future.

Invitation and open to the public: A July 26 program runs 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the Blythe Brenden-Mann Community Center at the Masonic Institute for the Developing Brain, 2025 E.
