In addition to the learning and collaboration that will take place at the Reeve Summit, anticipated event highlights will also be featured throughout the two-day event:

Adaptive Art Workshop
Kemi Yemi-Ese will be hosting an adaptive art workshop on the evening of March 6 - Troubleshooting Art: Using DIY Adaptive Aids in Art Making.

This art-making session is focused on sharing tips and tricks with participants that Kemi Yemi-Ese has gathered over the years as an artist with a physical disability. Most dry art mediums are difficult to use for people with limited hand function and adaptive aids can be expensive. During this session, Kemi will guide participants as they create meaningful art pieces with media that we make accessible ourselves. With the help of artist tape and our own ingenuity, no artistic expression is beyond our reach.

Professional Violinist Performance 

Amy Wang-Hiller, a Shanghai-born virtuoso violinist, faces cervical myelopathy from Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome.
