In partnership with Arts & Disability Ireland

We’re delighted to welcome contributors to an essential anthology for disability rights, Disability Visibility. This collection of essays, memoirs and oral histories presents a vital snapshot of the vast range of experiences gathered under the umbrella term of disability, a galvanising insight into how many of us live, and how narrow a range of narratives tends to reach a national audience.

In partnership with Arts & Disability Ireland, we are joined by the anthology’s editor, Alice Wong, and contributors Eugene Grant and Alice Sheppard. The conversation will be facilitated by Jody O’Neill.

Alice Wong (she/her) is a disabled activist, media maker, and Director of the Disability Visibility Project, an online community dedicated to creating, sharing and amplifying disability media and culture.

Eugene Grant is a part time writer and activist in the dwarfism community, based in North East England.

Alice Sheppard is a dancer, choreographer and writer. Engaging disability arts, culture, and history, she is intrigued by the intersections of disability, gender, and race.

Jody O’Neill is an award-winning autistic writer and performer, based in County Wicklow. Her work has a strong focus on disability advocacy and social inclusion.

This is a pre-recorded event. It will not have a Q&A.

Access Information: Open captions and ISL interpretation will be available for  this event. For further access information for all events, see ‘Accessing the Festival’ page.
