A partnership between UBC’s Wingspan cluster and Kickstart Disability Arts and Culture, this project builds on the tidal waves of change and activism from disability artists, self-advocates, disability studies scholarship, and the human rights disability movements to explore the unique visions of artists with visual disabilities. Commemorating B.C.’s Accessibility Awareness month, we bring together noted artists with visual impairments and internationally renowned disability scholars for a week of ‘meditative mashups’ (http://wingspan.educ.ubc.ca/studio-live/). The exhibit mashups will present often unexpected profusions of colorful visions, rich textures, and imaginative creations by artists with visual disabilities whose work enticingly asks audiences, “Can you see, what I see?”

In partnership with Live Studio, UBC's Wingspan, Kickstart Disability Arts and Culture

The co-hosts for this event are: UBC’s cluster, Wingspan-Dis/ability Arts, Culture and Public and Kickstart Disability Art and Culture
