On July 2nd at 5 PM in Akian Gallery, AUA will host ABILITY Magazine for a talk on ‘The Art of Engagement .’

Breaking down myths and stereotypes associated with disabilities is a primary goal of ABILITY Magazine. Editor-in-Chief Chet Cooper and Editor/Journalist Lia Martirosyan, will discuss how the implementation of volunteerism, music, humor and various visual arts can stimulate powerful sensory messages to a typically resistant society.

ABILITY Magazine is an American magazine founded by Chet Cooper in 1990 and launched as the first newsstand magazine focused on issues of health and disability.

An extensive interview with AUA President Armen Der Kuireghian was featured in ABILITY Magazine’s April/May 2015 issue, which discussed AUA’s pioneering disabilities services, no-smoking campus, policies on inclusive education, and much more. The full article can be read by the following link:
