March 10th, 2024: Crip’d Ecologies: Convening

Join us for our weekend Convening, an exciting gathering of Disability art, performances, films, experimental sound, workshops, time to connect and more! Crip’d Ecologies Convening is our closing event for the exhibition. It’s a free event with hybrid programming, in the gallery and online, and it’s open to disabled and non-disabled communities of all ages. 

Come along and celebrate the Bay Area’s vibrant Disability communities and the disabled artists whose work is unfurling expanded environments beyond binary ideas to offer new connections with the land that are personal, shared, participatory, hacked, and imagined. 

Workshops by Alexa Dexa (online and in person, ASL) and Anuj Larvaidya (in person, ASL)  

Reading by Sunaura Taylor (ASL)

Screening featuring Stephanie Heit, Cynthia Lee and Petra Kuppers
