Untamed Wild(er)ness: BIPOC Disability Arts Online Learning Pods
Hosted by Kickstart Disability Arts & Culture
Untamed Wild(er)ness is a series of online disability arts learning pods for BC-based Black, Indigenous, and people of colour mad, Deaf, and disabled artists and cultural workers. These learning pods will happen fully online, over the course of 4 facilitated workshops to be held in Fall 2022. Through the learning pods artists will be supported in: collaboratively designing access intimacy rooted in Disability Justice, crip kinship, and Indigenous epistemologies. Further, artists will be invited to expand their arts practices in this intimate workshop series by centering their explorations on: what does it mean to make mad, Deaf, and disabled art in virtual spaces that nurture solidarity between BIPOC communities that refuses to be tamed by colonial projects. These online learning pods will be collaborative in design.
*Please note, this is a paid experience. In order to honour the labour that goes into learning and creating together, each artist participant will be paid $150 for each workshop for a total of $600.
