Fionn Crombie Angus

Fionn Crombie Angus and Johnathon Angus, a father and son team from the West of Ireland, will present The Abundance Project: Radical Inclusion, the Power of Families, and Dreaming Bigger.

"When you consider that 499 out of 500 babies suffer from a lack of Down Syndrome, my parents were incredibly lucky."

The Angus’ will share an incredible story of the journey they embarked on four years ago —illustrated with photos, short films and music — chronicling their experiences in creating healthy and strong families and communities, surviving and thriving through the school years, meeting challenges creatively, world travel and the elements of a great life. This is an inspirational and family friendly presentation for artists, entrepreneurs, social change agents, advocates and people who support people they love.

Fionn Crombie Angus is a young man from Ireland with Down syndrome whose interests include nature studies, film making, visual arts, playing his fiddle, and travel. He manages his own government funded support plan,and is a member of the Irish Government Task Force for Personal Budgets. His father, Jonathan Angus, is a school teacher originally from America. Together they started Fionnathan Productions, to record and share their journey so other families can learn from their unorthodox approaches.
