cripping the arts 2019

Cripping the Arts 2019 was a three day symposium – panel discussions, co-creative workshops, exhibitions and performances – animating how Deaf, Mad, and Disability arts and activism changes how we experience art and culture as well as the ways our sector contributes, and leads to, the achievements of disability rights and justice movements.

We invited artists, scholars, researchers and policy makers to come together to explore, debate, and share emerging ideas and practices that relate to themes of representation and new models of leadership, disability culture in an increasingly digital world, and working in solidarity between disability rights, racial justice, decoloniality, and Indigenous sovereignty.

Panel discussions were live streamed for those unable to attend in person.

Cripping the Arts 2019 was co-hosted by British Council, Creative Users Projects, Tangled Art + Disability, Ryerson University, Bodies in Translation and Harbourfront Centre.
