Join us on the occasion of Disability Pride Month to explore the magical possibilities of access. In workshops led by disabled artists and organizers, we will discover creative techniques for worlding with the deep wisdom that disability offers. The Silent Disco will bring us together to share in the manifold dimensions of disability-centric nightlife with ASL song-signing, creative captioning, choreographic offerings, access doula-ing, and music. Together, we’ll open a portal to an ecology where access is a coordinating principle for sharing space, contemplation, and joy.
