Panel 3 13:00-14:00 Wednesday November 25 2020 Are you Experienced: Digital and Disabled- we are not your metaphor.

Chair Jo Verrent  Senior Producer at Unlimited, Board member The Space Arts and the Global Disability Innovation Hub

There is no single universal experience for disabled, D/deaf or neurodivergent artists.  This panel goes beyond the common perceptions of disabled practitioners and explores how artists are using technology and digital to redefine practice, access and audience.

In the so called ‘digital realm’ this is often worse than in other arts sectors, as people confuse empathy with pity and assume immersion can replicate lived experience (spoiler alert: it can’t). But what if we hand over control to disabled artists themselves? What new perspectives, technologies and implications then arise?
