Dreaming Accessibility Futures: A Card Game

Hosted by X University School of Disability Studies

A card game for Social Justice Week at X University by the School of Disability Studies

This event will take the form of a digital game through which we will work together to imagine different possibilities of the ‘future’ for X University. This game will create a space for participants to imagine how the future University, and education more broadly, might respond to Standing Strong Task Force calls by bringing in the different ways that disabled, deaf, and mad students experience university and beyond. Our hope is to counter the ableist special education system Egerton Ryerson helped to design.

Accessibility

ASL interpretation and live captioning will be provided. The talk will be held online over Zoom.

Please email avital.cherniawsky@ryerson.ca to discuss any access needs or inquiries.

Organizations

X University School of Disability Studies

Disability Studies at Ryerson is the first in Canada to provide a degree education exclusively from a disability studies perspective. The program is built upon foundations of inclusion and social justice, and offers an approach that is consistent with Ryerson’s reputation for professionally relevant education. Integrating theory and practice, our students and faculty pursue scholarship that serves, shapes and animates disability movements in Canada and globally. Drawing from the work of scholars, artists and activists and building from students’ personal and professional experiences, our program engages learners in a transformative process of reflection, debate and discovery.
