Following two years of successful events thanks to a partnership with VSA Minnesota, the state organization for arts and disability, the third iteration of this annual cabaret for performance artists with disabilities will be guest curated by storyteller Alison Bergblom Johnson. People with disabilities have rights laid out in such legislation as the Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. These phrases may, as unlikely as it may seem, come tripping off our tongues as people with disabilities. But in addition to rights, we also have responsibilities. Join us for an exploration of those rights and responsibilities.
Let us know you're coming on the Facebook event!
