Crip News v.2.1 (Extra Events!)
More events happening this week!
There’s a moment right after the newsletter goes out when I’m like, “Okay, what did I miss?” And thankfully, I get kind reminders! Apologies for not including these in yesterday’s round-up.
Kinetic Light is hosting a “Bubble Walk” on Wednesday, Oct. 20 from 4-6pm ET. Part of LAB, a program series where disabled artists share work and deepen collaborations, this event is a pilot for a virtual way to connect more intimately with smaller groups of disabled artists. LAB will coordinate access features. To signup, email Morgaine DeLeonardis with any access needs at firstname.lastname@example.org. No cost.
The Krannert Art Museum at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is hosting Crip* Colloquium, “a gathering of artists, professors, students, and organizers discussing and critically engaging with disability, access, and the potential to utilize these concepts in a generative and inclusive way.” Thursday, Oct. 21 from 2-7pm CT and Friday, Oct. 22 from 12-5:30pm CT on campus at the Siebel Center for Design and on Zoom. ASL and captioning. No cost.
