SAN FRANCISCO—Workshop: Neurodivergent Media

February 20, 2020 @ 10:00 am1:00 pm

Collaborate and develop a script and short film, and learn about video editing tools alongside fellow participants with artist and educator Allison Leigh Holt in this Neurodivergent Media workshop. This small-group workshop is intended for those interested in experimental media and video, and serves as an open invitation for attendees to participate in the co-creation of new disability narratives. An art exhibition and three-part series of community events, Recoding CripTech reimagines enshrined notions of what a body can be or do through creative technologies, and how it can move, look, or communicate. As the term “crip” reclaims the word for disability culture and recognizes disability as a cultural and political identity, so too do artists hack technologies to dismantle barriers to access. By creating new kinds of social and sensory interactions with technology, these artists portend a crip aesthetic for media arts that honors the diversity of human bodies. SOMArts Cultural Center 934 Brannan Street San Francisco, CA 94103 The event will start at 6 pm and end at 9 pm on Thursday, February 20, 2020. RSVP required. All events are free and ADA accessible.
