Anti-Colonial Disability Arts and Activism

Sunday, January 27, 2019; 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Qwo-Li Driskill in conversation on Poetry, Queerness, and Indigenous sovereignties. Both Indigenous and Disability Justice movements are calling for a radical refiguring of power and our relationships with each other on Indigenous land, but too often discussions of disability justice and Indigenous anti-colonial and decolonial resistance are spoken of as separate movements. This talk will weave between performance, poetry, and scholarship to call on decolonial and disability movements to imagine and center an anti-colonial disability justice model into our work as artists and activists.

Co-presented with Bodies in Translation and Cripping the Arts
