We CAN Workshop: A Disability Arts Pandemic Debrief & Call to Action

Hosted by Tangled Art + Disability

Many of us in the disability arts community have been unbalanced by this pandemic. This has generated moments where we have felt fragile, uncertain, and vulnerable. Spaces have opened – and closed. The ‘tide’ now recedes, and we are, individually and collectively, presented with a time to debrief and witness how we now present in our diverse worlds. What are the potentials/realities here? How has, or will this time affect our ideas, images, and strategies for practice? How (well) can we now access each other and the ‘gallery’?

This event is a conversation between Sean Lee (Tangled Arts & Disability), Josephine Guan, Pam Patterson & Leena Raudvee (ARTIFACTS & WIAprojects) and you– the attendees. We invite the community to come and ‘workshop’ with us as we contemplate the implications of this post-pandemic time. Come ready to listen, share, reflect, grieve, laugh, and imagine.

August 11th, 7:00pm – 8.30 PM EST on Zoom. ASL & captions provided.

Co-presented by Tangled Art + Disability and WIA Projects


ASL & captions provided. ASL by Jo-Ann Martin and Kimberley Johnson. Auto-captioning.
