A little about PEB 2015:

The Project EveryBODY Series led by Open Door Group, is a campaign driven by a collaboration of various community organizations, businesses and the City of Vancouver.  The project’s intended impact is to promote an “inclusive Vancouver” through providing high profile opportunities that truly showcase and celebrate the talents of persons with disabilities through arts and culture, employment, social connection and recreational opportunities.

Take note of the Project Everybody event series:

The four events lead up to a HUGE celebration on December 3rd, at the Roundhouse Community Arts and Recreation Centre in recognition of the UN designated International Day of Persons with Disabilities.
