Unmasking Brain Injury

November 15th, 2018 – January 3rd, 2019

Opening: Thursday, November 22 from 6-9pm

The Brain Injury Association of Durham Region (BIAD) is dedicated to helping individuals and families impacted by brain injuries by connecting community members who share similar physical, emotional, intellectual, spiritual, and social needs.

Members of the association participated in an international movement coordinated by Hinds Feet Farm in Huntsville, North Carolina, to give a face to their injury.

From the months of February to June, members designed masks that reflect their lived experience with a brain injury, with the goal of increasing visibility and awareness around the impact of brain injuries.

The stories shared reveal the challenges that each individual experiences and unmasks what cannot be seen on the outside.
