CANCELLED: Growing Room Festival presents Alessandra Naccarato

March 14 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Growing Room Festival presents Accessing Ourselves: Crip Poetics And Writing Our Desires, with panelists Alessandra Naccarato, author of Re-Origin of Species, Amanda Leduc, and cast members Kat Norris, Caroline Hébert, and Sandra Pronteau from the production Unsettled. Moderator & Event Curator: Aimee Louw.

Join disabled, Deaf, mad, crip, ill, tired, traumatized artists who write ourselves into being. Witness our origin stories, our fire, the shit we can’t say on the city bus or at the doctor’s office that we long to say to ourselves or each other. Bringing together Deaf and disabled artists of Indigenous and settler backgrounds, Amanda Leduc, Alessandra Naccarato, and cast members Kat Norris, Caroline Hébert, and Sandra Pronteau from the production Unsettled, we’ll hold space for and celebrate a multiplicity of experiences, languages and cultures, while pushing against white supremacy and the systems that uphold it. As we exist in the in-between and write flourishing futures, let’s move toward a Deaf and disability justice-centred criplit, together.

Cost: Pay What You Can (recommended: $12.50). Register here.
