    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?

    When lockdown happened may LGBTQ+ folx were forced into quarantine environments which didn’t respect how they identified.

    COMING UP

    11:00-12:00 Brunch with Hello Culture hosted by Helga Henry

    13:00-14:00 Lunch with Hello Culture Panel  Are you Experienced: Digital and Protest. Chair Javaad Alipoor Director The Javaad Alipoor Company,  exploring how digital platforms enabled protest and activism in art during lockdown.


    Black Lives Matter, decolonisation, statues – lockdown saw the biggest demonstrations and activism that finally challenged the systemic and institutional cultural frameworks that had been barriers to marginalised and minoritised people for decades. This breaking of the veil was achieved through physical protests buy online demonstrations such as black squares on Instagram and anti-racists sloganeering.

    But beyond the squares on Instagram,  cultural activism burns bright online – what happens next as the world continues to burn?

    Panellists:

    Stella Kanu Executive Director at LIFT (London International Festival of Theatre)

    Amahra Spence, Co-founder, Creative Director MAIA
