David Bobier will introduce the audience to the concept of the Social Model of Disability, explore the cultural history and background and the current practices of the Deaf and Disability Arts globally, nationally and provincially.
You'll be asked to think about the nature of diversity and inclusion in the arts, consider the excluded and imagine the notion of accessibility for all in the arts and finally to explore ideas, both independently and collaboratively, for integrating accessibility into your creative practice.
Participants will then develop an artistic work that has accessible tools built into it. These works could include sculptural objects, installations, performances.
Hackforge happily hosts this event in partnership with the University of Windsor School of Creative Arts.
