For many Canadians, the lives of people with intellectual disabilities are a mystery. Our nations past is stained with questionable decisions regarding how best to include the disabled in our communities. The Ghosts of Mariposa hopes to play a part in making the lives of people with intellectual disabilities more visible. This moving, inspirational play tells a fictional story inspired by the playwrights relationships with exceptional young men he met at the time of the closing of the Huronia Regional Centre. The Arts Engine desires to partner with interested organizations for advocacy, education or fundraising for these important members of our community.
