Nothing About Us Without Us Part 1: Stating Access: Preparing an Access Statement
Saturday, March 31, 11am–1pm

Dear __________________,

We want to come to your events or at least have the option to. Please let the choice be ours and not a failure on your behalf.


By interrogating accessibility, we are interrogating exclusion. Refraining from providing basic information about accessibility perpetuates the omission of bodies. Together we will define access and create accessibility statements for your institution, project space or program announcement.


Nothing About Us Without Us Part 2: Dialects of Perception: Centering Disability in Cinema
Monday, April 2, 7:30-9:30pm

Join Georgian Badal for a presentation that disrupts the ableist dominated representation of disability in cinema. Through an assemblage of clips and media, this presentation will re-center sight and sound from a disabled perspective.

Nothing About Us Without Us is a disability rights slogan circulated by Michael Masutha and William Rowland, two leaders of Disabled People South Africa in 1993. This slogan is an examination of the dynamics between control and voice. (Charlton, 1998)

Georgian Badal (b. 1981 Damavand, Iran) is an itinerant artist, curator, and researcher that resides in a present imperfect.

*All members get 20% off paid programming. A limited number of free spots are also available for Warrior & Goddess level members. Email to inquire about free tickets.

Our program costs go directly towards compensation of the instructors and staffers who work the event. We want to make programming as accessible as possible to anyone who is interested, however, so we offer volunteer opportunities in exchange for membership, as well as free community tickets to each program (number varies depending on capacity of the class). Email for more info or to find out more about these opportunities for a specific event.
