Disability Arts Online

Wednesday 21st November 07 / 21 November 2007

Jeff, from the London Disability Arts Forum (LDAF), got in touch the other day and asked me if I had heard about the LDAF/Tate Modern debate at 7pm on Monday 3rd December, in the Starr auditorium. The title of the debate is Should Disability and Deaf Art be dead and buried in the 21st Century? The panel includes Sandy Nairne, Paddy Masefield OBE, Yinka Shonibare, Nabil Shaban, Ju Gosling and Jenny Sealey. The debate will be chaired by Melvyn Bragg.

There’s also a survey that’s been commissioned about this very subject. Here is the link for the survey, if you want to take part.

Incidentally, the debate is also on the same day as the International Day of Disabled People - A double date for your diary.

Hi Carlita, thanks for your comments. You're very kind. I had look at your site and saw your black and white characters. I can understand why you're connected to them in the way that you are.
