Deconstructing Ableism Art Exhibit - Opening Reception

This is a past event.

Strength in Vulnerability - Deconstructing Ableism: Profiles of Success, Determination and Perseverence 

This exhibit explores how internalized ableism is deeply ingrained in the ways we think about the bodies of people with disabilities. This series peels back inclusion, acceptance and advocacy to discuss issues that the community continues to face.

Over the last six months, 18 different participants who all live with varying disabilities were photographed and interviewed. Each person spoke openly about their personal experiences living with a disability and dealing with external and internalized ableism.
