We are pleased to announce the installation of an Art Exhibit showcasing the artistic genius of individuals with intellectual disabilities to connect community through creativity. L’Arche Daybreak will also exhibit an informative historic display spanning 40 years in Richmond Hill.

Our experience tells us that the creative arts can be a powerful means for people, including persons with intellectual and other disabilities, to express themselves, to collaborate with others, and to become more engaged in society.
