At our October discussion, a panel of Disabled artists, Kiersi Coleman, Eliza Jensen, Grant Miller, India Harville and Kathy Coleman will be discussing what it truly means to have Disability equity in the arts. We will address how to move beyond tokenism and charity to full integration, what it means to include disability aesthetic and Disabled bodies and minds in art; the question of training and rigor; and how to enact Disability Justice in the arts.

Online participation will be available for this discussion.
