Art SPARKS with Eliza Chandler

Hosted by BEING Studio

Art SPARKS is a community learning series and you're invited! Join us for an exciting conversation on Desiring Disability with Eliza Chandler August 4th - 4:30pm EDT

Eliza Chandler will talk about what excites her about disability arts. She will share what she has learned about disability arts and accessibility during the pandemic and how she thinks that 'crip cultural practices,' that is, cultural practices that are led by and centre disabled people, can help to create futures that desire disability.

Art sparks ideas. Art sparks imagination. Art sparks change.

Art SPARKS is presented by the BEING Board of Directors with support from the Ontario Trillium Foundation's Resilient Communities fund.

Eliza Chandler (she/her) is an Assistant Professor in the School of Disability Studies at Ryerson University where she teaches and researches in the areas of disability arts, critical access studies, social movements. She leads a research program focused on disability arts and crip cultural practices. Chandler is also a practicing curator.
