Access Desires + Affirmations = Desired ACCESSIBILITY

Image Description: Bright colored typed letters mixed with letters made from tape, stones, twigs, dried orange slices and headphones spell out Accessibility Affirmation Workshop. Brown letters below the mixed letters say: November 5 Online and In Person, Thanks California Humanities! Three angular shapes in bright purples and hot pink sit in the bottom corners.


Access Desires + Affirmations = ACCESSIBILITY

Affirm your access desires! Please join us for a disability centered hybrid two hour virtual and in person workshop of writing, drawing, chatting, collaging and sharing your accessibility needs around “access intimacies” and ecological intimacies that also support us as ecological beings. We will use whiteboard and collage to make risograph printed access desire affirmation posters! We will open with an accessible movement to ground us and offer a short demonstration on how to use Zoom’s whiteboard. No need to use whiteboard, you can bring your own materials and collage, write, draw and chat along! Or, hang out – no need to produce anything! Everyone is welcome to speak out loud or add your accessibility words and thoughts. We will hold conversations around access intimacies and ecological intimacies to expand, support and ferment accessibility needs, words, and ways into our accessible eco crip futures. For in person participants, materials are provided and you and your devices are welcome to join in on the Zoom whiteboard too!
