Bodies in Translation 2020 Big Picture Committee Meeting

Bodies in Translation: Activist Art, Technology, and Access to Life (BIT) cultivates activist art produced by disabled, d/Deaf, fat, Mad, and E/elder people through research that explores how creating access to art for non-normatively embodied people and opportunities for the public to engage with this art expands understandings of vitality and advances social justice in Ontario and beyond.   

Bodies in Translation is at the mid-point of a 7-year, SSHRC-funded community/university Partnership Grant that builds and expands upon a working relationship between Re•Vision: The Centre for Art & Social Justice and Tangled Art + Disability to bring together 23 community organizations and academic institutions to advance disability arts in Ontario. 

Since our last Big Picture Committee meeting, BIT has produced a number of exciting projects including the publication and video animation of the BIT Guiding Principles, the Into the Light exhibit at the Guelph Civic Museum, the 2019 Cripping the Arts Symposium, and much, much more. We highlighted and celebrated many of these projects at this meeting.​
