Three local panelists have been brought together to investigate the topic of Curating + Disability. This panel discussion is running in conjunction with Canary in the Coal Mine, a group exhibition of work by participants of Making Our Mark II at Martha Street Studio. Its aim is to approach the topic of Curating + Disability from different viewpoints; curator, artist and scholar. This discussion will highlight the progress the Arts and Disability movement in Canada has made in exhibiting the work of artists with disabilities.
