We build community when we share our stories - whether they be a memory, an experience or just simply telling what we think is great about this place. STORY MATTERS. is a story collecting project from The Rapidian and GRTV. This story was captured at the Kendall College of Art and Design (KCAD)'s Woodbridge Ferris Building for a DisArt Festival event.
