Nothing About Us Without Us Part 1:
Stating Access: Preparing an Access Statement
Saturday, March 31, 11am–1pm
$16 Members / $20 Regular
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
$8 Members / $10 Regular
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.
Access Statement: WCCW has a 36” wide ramp at our front entrance and a wheelchair accessible restroom. We provide scent free soaps in our washrooms, and encourage guests to consider attending our events scent free. The event and discussion will be live-streamed with Periscope. If you require ASL interpretation, CART, Audio Description for film, or have any other access needs, please contact [email protected] by Saturday March 31, 2018 by 2pm.
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 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 [email protected] 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 [email protected] for more info or to find out more about these opportunities for a specific event.
