Exchange and discussion meeting: Giftedness from Every Angle
French (communication can be in English as well) / Adults and teenagers / Suggested registration / Free
Description: What does it mean if you are said to be gifted?
Giftedness is a reflection of our population as a whole: adolescents, adults of all genders, people from ethnocultural and immigrant diversity, those living in poverty or with a disability, individuals with multiple interests and talents, etc. Many gifted people don’t know why they feel different, yet this touches 3-5% of the population. While exceptional ability can be positive, many painfully hide their difference in order to be accepted. Through the sharing of gifted people’s experiences and observations, and through questions and comments from participants, this exchange will address the invisible status of giftedness within society and its impact on individuals.
