We would love to see photos of you celebrating Aniridia Day, wherever you are in the world. And we’re looking forward to people sharing their Aniridia Sight photos too.
We’ve produced a couple of posters that you can print off and use in your photos, to show that you’re supporting Aniridia Day. You can hold them up in front of you or put them on the wall, for example.
How far around the world can we spread the Aniridia Day logo? How many people can we get holding it up? Take your photos and share them with us on 21 June!
The first poster has “Supporting Aniridia Day” at the top, above the logo in the centre. At the bottom is our website and social media details.
The logo shows a cartoon image of the Earth, wearing sunglasses, smiling and giving 2 thumbs up.
The second poster is very similar, but has an extra space at the top to write your activity or location. We’ve included a Word version with a box that you can type into at the top.
So you could tell us about a special event that you’re doing, or let us know what city or country you’re in. We’d really like to see how and where you’re enjoying the day!
The next Aniridia Day is on 21 June 2018.
Could you speak at an online event to celebrate the day and improve understanding of aniridia? Do you know a patient, parent or doctor who would?
Our plan this year is to hold several webinars about aniridia during the day, that people can watch or take part in wherever they live.
This could take various forms (perhaps followed by questions from the audience):
- panel debate
Another option is discussion on a subject that anyone can take part in. This would still need a someone to lead and manage the session.
The subjects could be narrowly or broadly defined. The target audience could also be small or large: any parents, patients, doctors, or people in a particular country or having a specific surgery related to aniridia.
You can choose the local time and language of the session.
Here are some ideas, but we want to you to invent your own too:
- a person with aniridia hosting a ‘Ask me anything’ or demonstrating a screenreader
- an open chat for anyone affected by aniridia in Australia
- a talk and answers to questions by a aniridia doctor in Russian
- a semi-scripted conversation between two parents
- simultaneously watching of a YouTube video followed by questions/debate
An example of the first idea is James’s Facebook Live for Aniridia Day 2017.
We plan you use either join.me
internet conferencing systems . You will just need a computer or a smartphone. If you have a webcam you could use it, or share your screen, or just use audio. We will send you instructions in advance.
We need people like you, all around the world to run these webinars
If you are interested in being a speaker/host write to email@example.com
as soon as possible, what you want the subject and format and time (GMT) to be, so we can advertise it.
