The Engaging Disability 2007 Art Encounters program established links with artists and members of the arts community who explore themes of disability. Artistic expressions of disability and illness are powerful because they often connect experience with shared symbols. Painting, sculpture, film, poetry, memoir, and crafts are all venues and mediums through which to explore both individual and collective understandings of disability, impairment and disabling conditions.
We were proud to collaborate with the Sandstone Studio, Garth Homer Society's Artworks program, Pandora Arts Collective,Community Arts Council of Greater Victoria (CACGV), and the Society for Disability Arts and Culture on this exciting initiative. We hope you were able to join us at our Art Encounters events.
