Mural Launch – “Show Us Your Wings”
A mural was created by Debbie Kay, a brain injury survivor who painted a large butterfly on an alley fence to create awareness of acquired brain injury in the community and support the Brain Injury Association of Windsor and Essex County.
The life of a butterfly symbolizes the life of an individual with a brain injury. Much like a butterfly that develops from a caterpillar during the chrysalis process, the journey of a person with a brain injury can be transforming. Often an individual with a brain injury is not the person that they once were.
In this dramatic instance, Debbie Kay discovered and developed her artistic talents after her brain injury and is using it to create awareness of acquired brain injury in the community.
The public is invited to have their picture taken as the body of the butterfly and share their picture and story on their own social media sites with the hashtag #BIAWE. When they upload their picture, they will be eligible for a prize draw at the end of November.
Professional photographer Eyes on Windsor Photographer, Eric Bonnici, will be the photographer and people will receive their picture for a donation to the Brain Injury Association. All Covid protocols will be followed.
BIAWE’s mission is to enhance the lives of those affected by an acquired brain injury through education, advocacy and support.
Event takes place Sunday, November 22, 2020, 12 to 4 pm in the alley at Victoria and Pine.
