Disability/Arts/NYC (DANT) and Gibney will offer a 5-day Boot Camp on disability equity in NYC’s cultural landscape, funded by NYC Department of Cultural Affairs Disability Forward Fund. It will focus on preparing cultural workers, activists, and independent artists in the fundamentals of disability studies, artistry, and arts policy. Session topics include Disability Studies 101; public and private funding of disability arts; cultural policy and legislation; interdisciplinarity, intersectionality, and disability solidarity; reports from various disciplines, and more.
New York City has witnessed some promising developments around disability artistry in the past two years. Still, arts education from kindergarten through conservatory does not serve budding artists well. Cultural organizations, the philanthropic sector, and the city’s policymakers do not consistently evidence a strong commitment to this field. And cultural decision makers – critics, directors, casting agents, curators, and others – are still largely reluctant to embrace this work.
The Boot Camp is designed for 30 individuals who will emerge better prepared to shape strategies and best practices across the city. The sessions will take place at Gibney’s downtown location, The Whitney Museum, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Sessions will generally run from 1-7 pm on 3/15, 3/16, 3/22, 3/23, and 3/30.
Application deadline is Friday, February 1, 5 pm. For more information, visit disabilityarts.nyc/Bootcamp2019.
