The Art of Accessibility
Let’s celebrate the bravery it takes to disrupt the status quo and make change for diversity, equality and accessibility. Join a panel of Erring artists and organizers for a conversation about the art of accessibility. Erring embraces the power of making mistakes out loud in contrast to an education in being quiet and sitting still. Have you ever gotten detention for breaking the rules? How does our education system and the culture it serves create barriers and how can we open the door?
Moderator: Dr. Nadine Changfoot
Speakers: Jen Elchuk, Elizabeth Jenkins, Ian Guest
Saturday May 7th: 11am – 12:30pm
King George, Kaawaate
Join a panel of Erring artists who’ve taken over the school at an interesting moment in the history of this land on which it stands. The current generation of students, many of whom began their institutional education at King George Public School, will graduate from Kaawaate. What is in a name? What has changed and what has stayed the same as a new school was physically and conceptually rebuilt in Nogojiwanong on the traditional territory of the Anishinaabe? We come together to examine the juxtaposition of these two buildings and consider how we can continue to work toward decolonization as artists, educators and treaty people.
Moderator: Angela Connors
Speakers: Alice Williams, Kelli Marshall, others tba
