Image description: A black, standardized symbol of a person using a wheelchair silhouetted by a picture of the world. Encircling this, are symbols representing various types of disabilities and tools for assisting those with disabilities (descriptions of the symbols are in our first blog post!). To the right of this logo, the picture has this message, "An international community amplifying the voices of young people with disabilities through various art forms." The background color is a blend of purples, blues, and a tinge of lighter yellow.

WHO WE ARE

We are a collection of stories and experiences, a place where your voices can be heard. Here at Perceptions, we seek to inspire each other, uplift each other, and come together in a vast expression of creativity. We are here to listen, to give the work of young people with disabilities a platform. So do not hesitate to take part and to share all of your ‘perceptions’ through the art form that suits you most.

The wheel of a wheelchair is shown, along with a hand pushing the wheel. The background, a city or a town, is blurred.

ACCESSIBILITY

Committed to Your Needs

Perceptions is committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of circumstance and ability. We aim to adhere as closely as possible to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0, Level AA), published by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). These guidelines explain how to make Web content more accessible for people with disabilities. Conformance with these guidelines will help make the web more user friendly to everyone. Whilst our team at Perceptions strives to adhere to the guidelines and standards for accessibility, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website and we are currently working to achieve this. Be aware that due to the dynamic nature of the website, minor issues may occasionally occur as it is updated regularly. We are continually seeking out solutions that will bring all areas of the site up to the same level of overall web accessibility.

If you have any comments and or suggestions relating to improving the accessibility of our site, please don't hesitate to contact us at perceptions.international@gmail.com, through our contact form, or through social media. Your feedback will help us make improvements.
