    What are the key challenges and opportunities at this moment?
    What are the similarities and differences across Europe and beyond?
    What does best practice look like?
    What are the key initiatives? How do we move forward?


    Date and Time: 
Wednesday, June 26, 3:00 - 5:30pm GMT+1
     
    This online event comes at a key juncture for discussion of disability in the visual arts. This year’s Crip Arte Spazio (Disability Arts Movement in Venice), an exhibition curated by Shape Arts to coincide with Venice Biennale 2024, has been seen as a watershed moment in the representation of disability arts practice in visual arts. In addition, the Finnish Pavilion is showing work by Jenni-Juulia Wallinheimo-Heimonen, a disabled artist.
