In today's special episode, I bring you a conference-presentation-style podcast in collaboration with the research project, Bodies in Translation: Activist Art, Technology and Access to Life.
This episode acts as our conference submission to the 2021 Arts in Society conference in Perth, Australia. In the episode, we discuss what barriers to the arts and artistry exist both on the ground and online in Canada for people with disabilities and examine creative, pedagogical, and technological interventions aimed at expanding access both structurally and epistemologically.
Regular episodes of DSTW will return soon!
