Allies for Inclusion: The Ability Exhibit

Since its debut in 2010, The Ability Exhibit has traveled to dozens of colleges and universities across the country.

We can ship The Ability Exhibit to your campus, complete with instructions for setting up and hosting it in a variety of educational venues and spaces. Once you're finished, you'll pack it up and send it back to us.

The exhibit includes 10 stations and weighs about 600 pounds. Pricing and additional rental informationis available in the rental and purchasing guide

Please note that the “Learn From Allies” station materials, including cameras and backdrop, must be set-up and run by the host institution.

Upon completion of the training, participants can choose to display an Ability Ally placard at their work space or wear a wristband identifying them as an ability ally.

The Ability Exhibit brought together the concepts of awareness, education, and interesting facts in a creative and entertaining manner. Every person left the experience having learned facts, considered their abilities and limitations from a new perspective, and with the power to have a meaningful discussion with others about the subject of disabilities and the vision of living in an inclusive environment.
