The Future isn’t Soon Enough

Hosted by Harbourfront Centre

Location

Harbourfront Centre, 235 Queens Quay W, Toronto, ON, M5J 2G8, Canada

A continuation of the Nordic Talks series featuring discussions on the future of disability integration.

Over one billion people (15% of the global population) are disabled. Accessibility legislation is moving too slowly and removing barriers to access is only the beginning. How can we push the conversation beyond access and accommodation and toward meaningful involvement in all aspects of society?    This panel explores the concept of Crip Futurity: a longing for a world where disability is celebrated for what it is – diverse – in thought, practice, body and culture.

Panelists: Jenni-Juulia Wallinheimo-Heimonen Landon Krentz Sean Lee Jessica Watkin, Moderator
