New Wave

Hosted by Kickstart Disability Arts & Culture

Sometimes starting as tiny ripples a wave has the capacity to carry us, toss us, crash into us, and engulf us altogether. New Wave is an online exhibit that features the artwork of eight disabled youth artists.

Through this online exhibit, the multimedia works of art might start as a tiny ripple, but throughout the months of October, November, and December the online exhibit and its virtual programming will draw you in and show you the strength of the voices of disabled youth.

Participating Artists: Nina Aldewood, Vee CR, Megan Dewar, Taryn Goodwin, Laura Rechwan, Pree Rehal, Midori Ryans and Emily Tironi

The link to the Virtual Gallery Website will be live on October 24th. We will also be announcing various digital events throughout the course of the exhibition, so Stay Tuned!

Accessibility

ASL and live captioning available for the virtual opening on October 24th.

Kickstart Disability Arts and Culture, in Vancouver BC, gives artists with disabilities a voice. This can mean everything from facilitating a disability art group, to bringing an international film to Vancouver, to presenting art exhibitions and concerts. We are committed to supporting and promoting artists in every discipline, with all disabilities (and sometimes collaborations with able-bodied artists). We present the best in Vancouver and BC, and where possible, we bring new voices to Vancouver from across the country and around the world. We support artists and develop audiences for an understanding of disability art. Becoming part of the larger picture, of course, means professionalism. Kickstart is also committed to presenting professional work in a professional context. To coin a phrase “authentic non-sentimental expressions of the disability experience”. In programming and curating, we present cutting-edge work as the artists we present offer distinct perspectives on the human experience – risk taking, artistically engaging, socially relevant and at times, challenging. We are a nonprofit Society and a registered federal charity in Canada, with a small staff and a dedicated crew of volunteers. Please check out one of our events and get involved with us!
