DisArt : Working to increase the participation of Disabled people in our communities.
Is There Space for Disabled Artists at Art Fairs?
“All Outsider Art fairs have the potential to involve Disabled artists, perhaps more so than any other mainstream contemporary fair. Nonetheless, the prospects for full participation by or consideration of Disabled audience members, patrons, or buyers seem bleak.”
DisArt programming amplifies the voice, visibility, and value of all Disabled people. DisArt uses cutting-edge disability arts exhibitions and performances, digital experiences, conferences, organizational consulting, and public workshops as the means to engage a variety of audiences in dialogues about the lived experience of disability.
We exist to challenge common negative stereotypes associated with disability in order to increase the participation of Disabled people in our communities.
