The Come Together Weekender Day 1: Inclusion In Action

A day of shar­ing prac­tice, work­shops and two events cen­tring exper­tise from dis­abil­i­ty cul­tures and activists.

11-3pm: Creative Access + Inclusion Lab
@ KWMC and on Zoom (BSL interpreted and Captioned)

Join us for some creative play. What would ‘hybrid’ spaces and experiences feel like if they were designed with inclusivity and accessibility as the starting point and spark for creativity. Centring expertise from disability cultures this event will bring artists and makers, already working in this area or curious to learn new approaches, together to get creative.

The day will include lots of breaks, lunch and space for reflections and conversation.

Practical activities will be led by: Rachel Aspinwall and Holly Thomas from PECo Theatre’s City of Threads, Harsha Balasubramanian and Raquel Mesegeur and hosted by KWMC & Trinity Bristol.

After a day of creative play join us for a party!

7:30 – 9pm: REMOTE ACCESS PARTY x Come Together
On Zoom

Remote Access is a disability-centric nightlife party series. Since March 2020, these parties have brought together hundreds of disability organisers, artists, and party babes to celebrate the magic of crip wisdom, the ways that disability communities have built and expanded the possibilities for access in remote configuration.

For this party, members of the Remote Access organising collective will hold space for you to dance, enjoy performances, and connect with other attendees. Access features will include BSL, captions, visual description, sound description, and access doulas. See the party participation guide for more information:

Remote Access is a crip nightlife event curated and designed by a shifting collective of artists and access magicians, including stewards who have come to this work through the Critical Design Lab. This Remote Access x Come Toether party will be led by ‘queercrip organizer’ Kevin Gotkin.
