Pajama Party Politics: There is No Justice Without Access

Hosted by Listen to Dis' Community Arts Organization

Disability is often perceived through the lens of those observing and exploiting disabled people. The art sector is no exception. The barriers to exist and the injustice within our arts spaces are insidious in Saskatchewan.

Listen to Dis’ (LTD’) and the Saskatchewan Arts Alliance (SAA) invite you to take part in an online cultural conversation on May 31 from 10am to 12pm CST Sask time about why it’s important we all, as artists and cultural workers, both independently and as part of organizations, do the work to catch up and keep up with the current understanding of access and accommodation with and for the Deaf and disabled communities. 

The event will feature three local crip cultural leaders (Traci Foster, John Loeppky, and Carla Harris) who have taken their broken heart and made art as a way of belonging and also feature Guest Artist interruptions (Lindsay Scott, Fatima Nafisa, and Vuyo Ginindza).  

Everyone is welcome and we invite you to come as you are – just as you are – whether in pajamas on the couch, or comfy in your office.
