Dis/Able: DIY Lecture with Thirza Cuthand

Hosted by Tangled Art + Disability

Join us for a DIY lecture by Thirza Cuthand, as part of Jaene Castrillon's program Dis/Able: Dismantling Ableist Filmmaking... a DIY Extravaganza!

Cuthand is a performer and media artist who makes short experimental narrative videos and films about sexuality, madness, Queer identity and love, and Indigeneity.

Dis/Able showcases how "dis"abled filmmakers subvert the film-making process to be more inclusive of their accessibility needs. As Jaene Castrillon says, "The goal of this program is to show how accessible film-making IS, and help re-imagine a future were we are at the table leading and guiding a more equitable, inclusive and decolonized way of making films."

This lecture will be followed by a short Q&A.
