Out & About With . . . Parlando School for the Arts

Imagine!’s Out & About department was created in 1997 in response to the requests of community members with disabilities and family members who care for those with disabilities to have more options for community-based recreation services.

That “community-based” element is key - rather than scheduling activities in a segregated setting, you will find Out & About participants (both adults and children) utilizing recreation centers, bowling alleys, movie theaters, museums, and even amusement parks.

Of course, Out & About wouldn’t be able to provide those services without the support of the many, many community organizations that collaborate with Out & About to ensure that participants are able to receive positive instruction, within a therapeutic framework, to encourage growth, learning, community participation, socialization, health, safety, and the achievement of individual goals.

Today, I’d like to acknowledge Parlando School for the Arts for its support of Out & About. Parlando, housed at the Dairy Center for the Arts in Boulder, hosted three music classes for Out & About’s Summer Camp last year. They provided the classes free to Out & About. The classes were facilitated by Elle Tyler, piano facility member at Parlando. Out & About’s “Music and Movement” section of Summer Camp was definitely enriched thanks to Parlando!

Thank you, Parlando School for the Arts, for your support of the community and all of its members.

Bonus Parlando support of Out & About!
