Q.A.A.C. Summer Art Club

Hosted by National AccessArts Centre (NaAC)

Watch Art. See Art. Hear Art. Share Art. Make Art.

Want to learn more about storytelling in live performance? Tired of making art alone? This summer club is all about building a supportive place for artists from the disability community. 

Glitz and glamour come to mind when we think of cabaret, but the most important thing to any cabaret or live performance is storytelling. 

Summer Club members will work with some of the city’s most talented artists, sharing their stories from the disability, MAD, Deaf, and Queer communities. Theses Artist Co-conspirators will show examples of story-telling through: 

  • Film
  • Theatre
  • Drag
  • Burlesque
  • Comedy
  • Spoken Word
  • Graphic Design
  • Photography

We will explore how these forms support each other and work together to tell a story best, your story.


Anyone who identifies as belonging to the disability community and is interested in exploring storytelling can join the program. The program is open to folks who communicate in all ways including ASL and those who are non-verbal, non-readers, and readers at any level.
