In Partnership with Kent Harrison Arts Council, Kickstart Disability Arts & Culture Presents: Nothing Without Us

So many times, decisions are made for persons who identify as living with a disability without their input. Our community needs to be seen and heard clearly, and from their own voices, that is why this exhibition is titled “Nothing Without Us”. The exhibition will feature visual art from 11 artists who identify as living with disabilities.

Participating Artists: August Bramhoff, Meghan Carich, Karen Colville, Jerry LaFaery, Laurie Landry, Kat Malenica, Theresa Moleski, Mujtaba Saloojee, Murray Siple, Rose Williams and Margaux Wosk

Accessibility

Please note there will be COVID safety features in place in the gallery to ensure the safety of all who attend throughout the duration of the exhibition.

This exhibition was originally slated for Fall 2019, but was originally delayed because the Gallery received funds to make some accessibility upgrades, solely based on presenting a Kickstart exhibition! As with many construction projects, the upgrades were delayed so we made the decision to postpone the show until they were complete. The upgrades are now complete and Kickstart is thrilled that, despite COVID we are able to move forward with the exhibition!

    Kickstart Disability Arts and Culture, in Vancouver BC, gives artists with disabilities a voice. This can mean everything from facilitating a disability art group, to bringing an international film to Vancouver, to presenting art exhibitions and concerts.

    We are committed to supporting and promoting artists in every discipline, with all disabilities (and sometimes collaborations with able-bodied artists). We present the best in Vancouver and BC, and where possible, we bring new voices to Vancouver from across the country and around the world. We support artists and develop audiences for an understanding of disability art.

    Becoming part of the larger picture, of course, means professionalism. Kickstart is also committed to presenting professional work in a professional context. To coin a phrase “authentic non-sentimental expressions of the disability experience”.

    In programming and curating, we present cutting-edge work as the artists we present offer distinct perspectives on the human experience – risk taking, artistically engaging, socially relevant and at times, challenging.

    We are a nonprofit Society and a registered federal charity in Canada, with a small staff and a dedicated crew of volunteers. Please check out one of our events and get involved with us!
