Raising Stanley is a collaborative audio-visual documentation of the process of raising a guide dog for the blind. Karen Bailey, a visual artist, paints Stanley, a guide dog puppy, engaged in a multitude of activities that mirror his future working life. Kim Kilpatrick, a blind storyteller, performs stories of life with Tulia, a working guide dog. Together they present a creative collaboration in praise of guide dogs, art, stories, disability awareness and friendship.
Stanley is with the Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind.
