Theme

In recent years, disabled people have emerged from our various closets, challenging society’s limited vision of community and citizenship. In the midst of this, a robust disability arts movement has grown to shape a new image of disability in the public imagination.  This presentation explores this social and cultural landscape, and our role in a more inclusive and equitable society.
