Disability Rights, Disability Justice, Disability Theater, Aesthetic, Accessibility, Segregation, and Inclusion, themes included in a conversation longtime over do. We, as deaf and disabled artists, have worked separately for years dealing with variations of these issues without having any communal support. In this conversation we come together to share our thoughts through talking, planning, creating, and connecting continuing our artistic practice, but this time supporting each other. You are invited to join us so we may learn from each other. It is time to change parameters and invest in learning how to accommodate all artists with special needs.

This session will provide CART captioning services in English and ASL interpretation. This session will be recorded.
