Different, Not Less – An Evening with Dr. Temple Grandin
The Autism Resource Centre (ARC) and the Saskatchewan Stock Growers Association (SSGA) have teamed up to bring the one and only Dr. Temple Grandin to the Conexus Arts Centre on June 12, 2016. Tickets went on sale through Conexus on March 1st.
“SSGA is excited to partner with ARC on this innovative partnership” said Chad MacPherson, SSGA General Manager. One in every 68 people is diagnosed with autism, so almost every family in Saskatchewan is touched by it in some way. Obviously that includes members of the livestock community. Dr. Grandin has the unique ability to bring the livestock and autism communities together.”
“Temple is truly the rock star of the autism world and beyond. Dr. Grandin is an international autism advocate, author, speaker and livestock-handling expert whose brilliance and insights have revolutionized how we think about autism, animal welfare and humanity,” said Keely Wight, ARC Executive Director.
In 2010, Time magazine named her one of the 100 most influential people in the world. Dr. Grandin’s life story was made into an HBO movie titled Temple Grandin, starring Claire Danes, which won seven Emmy awards and a Golden Globe.
Different, Not Less is a rare opportunity to hear first-hand how one individual can reach their potential regardless of the challenges and barriers they may face. Tickets to see the inspirational Dr. Grandin go on sale at noon on March 1, 2016 through the Conexus Arts Centre Box Office. Prices range from $30-45 with $100 VIP tickets that include a pre-show reception with Temple.
