The “Art at the Intersection of Visible and Invisible Identities” event will discuss barriers of accessibility
Ryerson will celebrate International Day of Disabled Persons with an event on Dec. 3 addressing how the barriers of accessibility and inclusion can channel artistic brilliance.
Held at the Centre for Urban Innovation on campus, the event will feature Toronto textile artist Apanaki Temitayo Minerve and her artwork. Minerve will also hold a discussion on how disability art differs from mainstream art and how artists are able to express their journey and thoughts.
Minerve currently works as an art facilitator with The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health and Workman Arts Art-Cart Program in Toronto. Her background is on multimedia fibre art and her art reflects topics of spirituality, Black womanhood and mental health.
The event is wheelchair accessible with closed-captioning. Sign language will be provided for those who need it.
