Athens News Matters: Treasure Maps
Sponsored by the Georgia Council in Developmental Disabilities and L'Arche Atlanta, “Treasure Maps: The Georgia Storytelling Roadshow, 2021” is a pop-up, interactive, outdoor theatre taking place in six cities across Georgia.
The Treasure Maps film features ten people with developmental disabilities from Georgia telling their own stories about navigating the complex webs of life in our communities as a person with a developmental disability.
One of the goals of the event is to raise awareness about the need for supports and services for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families to live and thrive in the community rather than institutional settings like nursing homes.
