Creative solution helps him work in the arts

The newest employee of the Contemporary Arts Center is hard to miss as he zips around in a wheelchair with a GoPro attached.

Doug G Tour Guide24-year-old Doug Goering has cerebral palsy, but the CAC saw beyond his disabilities. Going to work at the Contemporary Arts Center as a navigator, he reviews exhibits with a GoPro on his wheelchair. A special key board creates an audio version of his thoughts.

“Despite any person’s need, there is always a place for each and every person that corresponds with their own passion and interests,” said Ben Lehman with Starfire.

Goering was recently featured on Local 12 news. You can watch all his videos on the CAC Vimeo channel.
