Rachel has an intellectual disability and has been an artist for over 8 years. She loves to draw and create. The images, shapes and feelings you embody when looking at her work is truly special. While she has a hard time communicating verbally, her art has a way of connecting with people and communicating on a whole other level.

The film is an inter-dimensional journey of creativity through the lens of Rachel’s drawings. Her work represents a unique and vast creative landscape to explore. More importantly, her philosophical outlook establishes an open-mindedness and inclusivity that is both beautiful and inspiring. Our intention was to leverage that outlook and use her phrase "It Can Be Anything" as a mantra to steer us through her journey.

What first started as a concept for a film, turned into an art workshop program for intellectually disabled Canadians, virtually hosted by the Art Gallery of Ontario. 'It Can Be Anything' is about inclusivity and artwork coming together to support a world of diversity and creativity.
