Gallery

Our gallery of films and photos offers a rare and nuanced look at the power of disability arts, culture and public pedagogy to show the resilience of artists and people with disabilities. Artists with disabilities from diverse backgrounds and media speak about their own experiences, challenges to their social belonging, accessibility, and the rich cultural imagination learning from artists with disabilities offers educators, educational leaders, students, and the wider public.
