Open Access Workshop: Organizing Accessibility from the GrassrootsApr 17 | 1:00 pm - 4:30 pm
Join us via video conferencing or telephone for an Open Access Workshop with Carmen Papalia.
In 2015, Vancouver-based artist Carmen Papalia responded to the failures that he experienced as a recipient of institutional disability support services by proposing Open Access; a conceptual framework for accessibility that moves beyond a policy or accommodation-based model by providing guidelines for mutual care. When put into practice, Open Access problematizes the typical roles of institutionalized care by encouraging participants to collectively envision a space that suits their needs, then share accountability towards that vision and organize accessibility from the grassroots.
The workshop is free, but attendance is limited. Please register.
