CVI Art - Marji McWee Interview

Marji McWee is an adult who has had CVI from birth but was only diagnosed a few years ago. Through her childhood, art and music were used to help Marji develop her vision. In this fascinating discussion we learn about the multiple ways art and music can help all people with CVI, to see the world, to understand and express their world, and enjoy the incredibly important social opportunities.

Marji McWee writes for CVI Scotland as the blogger Dragonfly.

Marji McWee writes:
Art and music are powerful modes to express to the world what words cannot. Both give us profound ways to understand and process our world, but it can also be a means for conveying to others what it is like to live with CVI. For children and adults living with CVI, continued opportunities to explore the Arts through hands-on experiences and appreciation can make a difference and allow us to be a part of our community.
