Atlantic Minds Wide Open: Friday, Nov 25th

Next Friday night Ryan is going to be in his first music video! In a post a few weeks ago I mentioned that several families in our parents group are participating in the Atlantic Minds Wide Open film festival next Friday night at Alderney Landing.

The film fest starts earlier in the day and features workshops, short films and an awesome feature. And it’s all for only $15!

Although Asperger’s Syndrome is not a mental health condition, many people with ASD have mental health challenges as they grow older because of the anxiety caused by their neurological differences.

We wanted to make a short film about ASD for the film fest and one of the parents came up with the amazing idea of doing a music video – and then she actually wrote a song about Asperger’s. The song is just beautiful and once the video has had its ‘premiere’ I’ll post the lyrics here, so you can see what I mean.

But for now, visit the Atlantic Minds Wide Open website and see if you can book a babysitter for next Friday night. Tickets are $15 and our film will be shown in the Neighbours & Neighbourhoods segment at 6:45pm.

Hope to see you there!
