On Stage & On Page: Disability Justice in Film, Theatre, & Cultural Work
Please join AWN for a discussion with Day al-Mohamed and Deanna Parvin Yadollahi on disability, film, theatre, performance, art and culture.
Disabled people are creating art, fiction, film, and performance art - please join us for this exciting conversation about Disability Justice and Cultural Work!
- Day Al-Mohamed is a disability policy advisor, a science fiction and fantasy author, and a documentary filmmaker. When not doing that, she likes to fence, spend time with her wife, and annoy her cat, Doom.
- Deanna Parvin Yadollahi hopes to enact institutional change and radical reimagination that will lead to more supportive and just realities. Deanna’s work includes community-building, resource-creating, presenting, writing, and Deanna’s creative access consulting practice. Deanna is pursuing a Masters degree in Disability Studies at CUNY school of professional studies.
- Moderator: Lydia X. Z. Brown, AWN Director of Policy, Advocacy, & External Affairs
We will provide ASL interpretation and CART captioning for this event, which participants will be able to join by video or phone.
