Fya’s project centered around a series of four events on the theme of I Am Enough. Each event was created for and by people in the disability community, with each event being a space for people to express, reflect on, and document the needs, joy points, and celebration elements of the disability community. A legacy project based on the theme of I Am Enough will document the research and knowledge generated through the event series to lift up the ways in which people with disabilities are enough, and that they can use their skills and talents to create opportunities for themselves.
