Disability Atlantic Arts Symposium
Hosted by Theatre New Brunswick, DAAS provides accessible and equitable professional development opportunities to artists with disabilities.
The Disability Atlantic Arts Symposium will be an online gathering that brings Atlantic-Canadian Disability-identified artists together for the first time.
Taking place on October 22, 23 and 24, DAAS will consist of three panel discussions: “Funding Access: Where’s the Money?”, “A Conversation with Funders” and “Strange Avenues”. DAAS will close the event with an exciting Cabaret line-up of drag, burlesque, spoken word, poetry, performance art, comedy and a circus act!
DAAS promises a thoughtful setting to discover new artists and opportunities, share insights and stories, all with the goal of unifying an undeniable Disability arts community in Atlantic Canada.
The Disability Atlantic Arts Symposium will have ASL interpreting, closed captioning, transcripts and a mix of visual descriptions and integrated audio descriptions.
