Student Accessibility Services and Tufts' Department of Film and Media Studies recently partnered with two student filmmakers, Ben Hoskings and Ray Bernoff, to produce "Day By Day," a short documentary about six Tufts students' experiences as artists living with disabilities. "Day By Day" premiered with great success in mid April, and the film will be shown at two national conferences later this summer. Congratulations to Ben and Ray, who have also entered "Day By Day" in a national contest for filmmakers with disabilities.
Meetings will be held on May 3 and 4; they are approximately one hour in length and attendance at one meeting is required. Please check our calendar page for exact details. Students attending non-Tufts programs should attend a non-Tufts meeting; students attending Tufts programs should attend a Tufts meeting (with the exception of those who attended the group presentation during the Resident Directors' recent campus visits).
