Tangled Art + Disability presents Cripping the Arts Symposium

Tangled Art + Disability presents Cripping the Arts, a three-day symposium from April 28-30th 2016, which seeks to advance Deaf and Disability arts in Canada by addressing the question: How do Deaf, disabled, and Mad people access the arts both as audience members and creators?
 
Cripping the Arts will bring together artists,academics,curators,arts council officers, and community members invested in Deaf and Disability Arts and culture. This symposium will be organized around two main themes—Accessible arts practices and Deaf and Disability aesthetics—and will cumulate with summary notes offered by a symposium discussant.
 
Each day of the symposium will open with a keynote address followed by a series of round table discussions organized around the theme of the day. Each round table will be led by an expert in the field (artists,academics,curators, arts council officers, etc.) and the discussion will be open for everyone to participate in.
