Disability Awareness Week

Disability is not a 'brave struggle' or ‘courage in the face of adversity’. Disability is an art. It’s an ingenious way to live.

Cripping Culture: A Live Poetry Slam and Art Show!

This is an announcement to let y’all know about a very special brand new event taking place during this year’s Disability Awareness Week (May 23rd – 28th) on the UW campus.

We are excited to bring / build community and celebrate disability through poetry and performance at a live performance/open mic event.

We invite anyone and everyone interested in participating in any way to email us at:

In order to organize this event we ask that you email us a short description of your art piece so we can accommodate your participation and create a working line-up.

This is an event intended to celebrate all kinds of disability, art, and artists (and audiences too!) This means: all types of performance/ expression is encouraged. So— feel free to share a poem, sing a song, play an instrument, display an art piece etc.
