Super Power Kids
Super Power Kids is an exciting initiative focused on raising the profile of children with disabilities, showcasing their unique talents, strengths and indomitable spirit. It directly challenges the deficit language often used around disability to focus on the gifts and abilities of Super Power Kids.
Super Power Kids is a collaboration between Kalparrin and renowned photographer Rachel Callander, author of the international award-winning book, Super Power Baby Project, capturing exquisite photographic images of children living with disability, telling their stories in a stunningly produced 200-page hardcover book to be launched at the 2019 Awesome International Arts Festival for Bright Young Things, including a photographic exhibition at the State Library of Western Australia and distribution of the book and accompanying educational resources to schools throughout Western Australia.
Using powerful imagery and storytelling and partnering with respected and high profile organisations, Super Power Kids is an 18-month campaign, using traditional and social media with the aim of educating children and adults that there is much that lies beyond initial and often negative impressions of children with disability.
Super Power Kids book and exhibition will demonstrate that children with disability have so much to teach us about themselves and ourselves – and will reveal the value, potential, abilities and beauty in all children.
Please get behind this initiative. Get to know our Super Power Kids and together we can change the focus, change the language and we can adopt an attitude that celebrates all of humanity.
Please get in touch if you’d like to buy the book.
