I often wonder, 'Where are people with disabilities?'. We don't really see them in the places where culture is made. If you don't see them around, ask yourself where they are, and why.
— Luca Badetti

We are taught to hide our inabilities, socially glorifying and displaying our strengths. Dr. Luca Badetti tries to embrace both abilities and inabilities, arguing that this is an important way to become more complete and connected human beings: by encountering disability.

Professor at Loyola and instructor at DePaul University as director of the Community Life at L’Arche, holding a PhD in Disability Studies, in his TED Talk, Luca shares powerful stories from his live-in experience with persons with and without intellectual disabilities, inviting everyone to befriend and accept their own perceived limitations, and to stimulate human growth.
