Who are the Deaf and/or disabled artists in Canada? How Deaf and disability arts practices are recognized, supported and distributed in the general arts sector? What actions can arts and culture spheres undertake in order to foster cultural accessibility? These are some questions guiding the research "Deaf and Disability Arts Practices in Canada", commissioned by the Canada Council for the Arts and led by Véro Leduc and a team composed of Deaf, disabled, and allied researchers and artists. Based on the analysis of interviews with 85 participants, the workshop will offer a better understanding of Deaf and Disability Arts Practices in Canada as well as an overview of best practices of cultural accessibility.
This presentation is part of Interrogating Access, a series of talks and workshops on accessibility in art and media production.
