Please join Soul City for a fundraiser event for Kulture City: an amazing organization who is making a difference in the lives of people with special needs. Tickets are $20 each, or $140 for a table of 10. Doors open at 7:00 PM. Soul City will play from 8:30-11:30 PM.
Learn about KultureCity® and why we work so hard to make a change for people living with special needs.
KultureCity® owes its birthright not to any one person, or any few, but to the many thousands of people who make up the KultureCity® family – families who have worked tirelessly for acceptance and a better future for their children with autism. Families who have fought school systems for their children to be educated, doctors for their children to be treated, establishments for their children to be attended to. These families are the backbone of KultureCity®.
Though the mission is daunting and requires reversing the centuries-long history of “out of sight, out of mind” that the segregation of autistic individuals serves to promote, it has been done before successfully.
Isolation, unemployment, and lack of education have been assumed to be inevitable consequences of the limitations imposed by autism itself. This is simply not the entire truth. The inferior economic and social status of people with autism is not a consequence of the disability itself, but rather the result of societal barriers and prejudices. As with racial minorities and women, only true acceptance can change this landscape.
KultureCity® is asking for that acceptance. Little by little, we are changing kulture, and pushing boundaries.
You see for decades, the focus has been on seeing the children as severely handicapped and mentally disabled.
Today however, we are hearing more and more amazing stories about children on the spectrum displaying talents and skills no one believed possible. Some develop computer applications, some play music with amazing talent and some non-speaking children display writing abilities that show a deep understanding of language and life.
None of the above means that raising a child on the spectrum is smooth and easy. The children do present difficulties in a range of areas including medical care, sleep patterns, eating disorders – to cite just a few.
AND KULTURECITY® HAS BEEN CREATED TO ACHIEVE THAT GOAL.
The challenge that our society now faces is helping families capture the array of abilities and talents that the children have while enabling them to cope with the special issues that so commonly mark the children’s lives. It can be done.
We’re not offering grand solutions, but instead, simple things that work. Things like helping businesses reach these children and their families with small changes in their practices. Ipads for the ones who are non-verbal, art and music camps for the ones who have never been exposed to them, scholarships for families that cannot afford lessons, respite care and toys just to brighten up their days and show them and their families that WE as a community care.
