Building Queer Crip Artist Communities with Dev Ramsawakh
Disability Justice calls for the leadership of the most impacted but as the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic continues, disabled and neurodiverse queer racialized artists have been left behind even within their own community spaces. This workshop will explore the needs of disabled and neurodiverse artists and how to integrate accessibility and disability justice into our spaces.
RSVP is required.
This event is hosted virtually on Zoom.
ASL will be provided at every workshop by Phoenix The Fire @phoenixthefire1111
