Description


In ‘Making Art at the Margins: LGBTI+ Disability + Arts’, Jax Jacki Brown (LGBTI Disability Rights Artist with two works in the Dangerous Deeds exhibition) will explore how she has used art to express her identities and highlight issues of disability rights and sexuality rights.

The disability rights movement, disability arts, the social model of disability and disability pride have had transformative influences on JAX’s life, her art and activism as a queer wheelchair user. Hear from Jax about how she uses art to express her identities, learn about the disability rights movement and how art can be a vehicle for social change!
