The Institute for Human Centered Design will host an informal evening with Eli Wolff, Sara Hendren, and others sharing disability rights poetry, art and expression, and to join in a conversation about the place of creative expression in the disability rights movement.
Inspired by disability-rights poet and artist Neil Marcus, Eli Wolff has been writing poetry from the perspective of disability rights and advocacy for the last year. Eli will be reading "I am Light" and other poems from this experience.
Sara has been thinking a lot about adaptive and assistive technologies, prosthetics, and all the political and cultural ways we comprehend and represent disability. Among several projects, Sarah will discuss "The Accessible Icon Project" that provides supplies and services to transform the old International Symbol of Access into an active, engaged image.
When: December 19th at 7pm
Where: The Institute for Human Centered Design, 200 Portland Street, Boston
