Shifting Perspectives

We now have this fantastic book in our library. It is a companion to the Shifting Perspectives exhibition. 

Shifting Perspectives has become a global art and awareness project which has reached tens of thousands of people. The exhibition has travelled throughout the UK and Ireland. It has visited 4 continents and 7 different countries. 

The work - all taken by photographers with a connection to someone with Down syndrome - has gained recognition for its contribution to the field of photography, and its success in challenging attitudes towards people with Down syndrome. 

Currently in the Down Syndrome NSW Library ...
In the latter half of 2013, work will commence on the development of a comprehensive, industry standard catalogue of the library and archival holdings. We are the custodians of significant collection of Down syndrome specific texts, in a variety of formats, collected over a thirty-year period. 
The library preserves the history of the organisation and is developing an appropriate archive, its development and care is an ongoing project.
