Benefitting Islands of Brilliance
Like a Phoenix, The Crisis has risen, regrouped, and is ready to rock the Pavilion as WNL first-timers! This is a six piece powerhouse of rock with a long history of local talent. Multiple harmonies and an array of instruments help them perform songs by Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, Styx, Pat Benatar, REO Speedwagon, Boston, and many more.
About Islands of Brilliance
Islands of Brilliance utilizes project-based learning for children and young adults on the autism spectrum. IoB allows students to grow their intrinsic capabilities and practice communication, increasing their likelihood of independence as adults. Design workshops create a space for students to explore creativity through the use of technology, during which they learn technical skills and grow confidence in critical social and peer-to-peer interactions. Students are matched one-to-one with mentors—design field professionals—which not only changes public perception of this disability, it also paves the way for future higher education and employment opportunities. An experienced, licensed special education teacher, with paraprofessional support, oversees all workshops.
