Art and Ableism

Monday 15th August, 2:00 – 4:00pm 

Location: Online

Speakers: Sophie Cassar, Lara Chamas, Fayen d’Evie, Sam Petersen, Katie Ryan, Jane Trengove

This online panel centres disabled artists’ lived experiences, and proposes disability informed practice as a site from which to expand alternative approaches to collectivity, labour and time. The panel challenges ableism in artistic contexts by forefronting collaboration, consultation, active research and appropriate resourcing. Though open to all, the discussion is primarily aimed at curators, artist-run collectives and gallery personnel. 

Touching on recent political and theoretical concepts relating to disability, the session is part of an ongoing series that works towards developing a strong model for inclusive practice in the arts. The panellists look forward to sharing their ideas and hope to initiate discussions that can evolve well beyond the session.

Access: This event will be Auslan interpreted live and a captioned recording will be available after the event on KINGS’ website. Please contact us with any other access requirements at
