Deaf and Disability Futures features roundtable discussions and keynote presentations dedicated to thinking about Deaf and Disability Arts culture in relation to digital transformation, representation, leadership and Indigenous resistance, racial justice and colonialism.
Presentation 1: FUTURE
This panel explores Deafhood, madness and disability within the framework of digital transformation, cultural futurisms and Disability Arts culture. Artists speak to their own knowledge of the ways that the digital world is impacting aesthetics, representation, activism and artistic and social practice. The panel also seeks to respond to Canada’s new cultural policy, as well as Canada Council for the Art’s urgings to develop digital strategies that support the arts now and into the future.
