Tangled Art + Disability.  


Goal of the Bodies in Translation project:

  • Create access to art for non-normatively embodied people and opportunities for the public to engage with such art, in order to:

  • expand understanding of non-normative vitality and advance social justice in Ontario.

Goal of the knowledge platform:

  • Provide accessible and inclusive teaching/learning tools that will facilitate the sharing of digital information (as described above).

  • Spark the curiosity of those who might not otherwise imagine inclusive ways of working.

Goal of the co-design sessions:

  • Collaboratively generate design ideas for the knowledge platform in interactive, useful and playful ways, considering:

  • what the knowledge platform could be, what potential users want to see in a platform, and how users would want to engage with the platform.
