Disability in the Arts, the Last Avante Guard?

This is a past event.

In 2007, Turner-prize nominee Yinka Shonibare described disability arts as the last great avant-grade 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.
