"The understanding of a culture comes from hearing the language, tasting the food, seeing personal interactions, experiencing the traditions, and so much more when it is in context."
— Elizabeth Laval & Candice Pendergrass, Sikh Youth Public History Project
SAN FRANCISCO AND ONLINE—Affirm your access desires! Please join us for a disability centered hybrid two-hour virtual and in-person workshop of writing, drawing, chatting, collaging and sharing your accessibility needs around “access intimacies” and ecological intimacies. We will use whiteboard and collage to make risograph-printed access desire affirmation posters! We will lead a short demonstration on how to use Zoom’s whiteboard. No need to use whiteboard, you can bring your own materials and collage, write, draw and chat along! Or, hang out – no need to produce anything! Everyone is welcome to speak out loud or add your accessibility words and thoughts. We will hold conversations around access versus accessibility to support and ferment accessibility needs, words, and ways into our accessible futures. For in-person participants materials are provided and you and your devices are welcome to join in on the whiteboard too!
