Disability Arts, the Last Avant-Garde?
Date: Monday 27 May 2019
Time: 6pm to 8pm
Where: 107 Projects, 107 Redfern Street, Redfern
In 2007, Turner-prize nominee Yinka Shonibare described disability arts as the last great avant-garde movement. There is a long way to go before arts and disability is truly equal with other artists. This year in Australia, the federal government is working to renew the National Arts and Disability Strategy. This session will explore emerging trends in arts and disability practice, the future that arts practitioners with disability want to see and the impact of ongoing consultations and targeted initiatives.
Moderator - Sarah Houbolt, artist and access consultant
