COMING UP @ VAE
What if you got to design your own perfect city totally from scratch? What would it look like? In My Backyard (IMBY) is a month-long collaborative experiment where we come together and try to do just that, right here in VAE’s main gallery.
disabled. universal. audacious.
THE EVERYDAY is a multi-venue, multi-discipline, cross-disability project with the curatorial goal of highlighting universal experiences, told from the disability perspective, presented in an audacious way. This project will take place in August and September of 2018. The project is led by an international steering committee of people and artists with disabilities and people with careers at the intersection of arts and disability. The steering committee was strategically built to give this project the national reach and perspective needed to produce an event that is unique to our community. The project will be centered around a visual art exhibition, which will be mounted in VAE’s main gallery and curated by Sam West, head curator at Attenborough Arts Centre. The project will also include a keynote address, panel discussions, interactive activities, and theatrical, musical, and dance performances.
