Disability Arts Online

Foot and mouth / 28 October 2007

Overdue visit to a new local arts centre. I got the owner, a young English woman, talking about disability art.

Might have known it; her only experience with us artistic crips has been with the foot and mouth painting brigade (no offence intended - each to their own I say). The idea of us expressing our experiences through our art hadn’t occurred to her, even though this is what she does with her photography.

Oooh my baked potato is about to frazzle. Our disabled family would like a little feature = uniboob (me), rib-crackered-jellied arm-Al (and still riding towards Cuba for the Royal Marsden Campaign), sight and hearing impaired Schmutter, little missy three legs and of course cinder-potato. By the way we love your blog and it is winging its way round the Disability Officers in Further and Higher Education - huh, how many of them are disabled people we wonder? Jamboree contacts. By the other way, Amber Rose might not be who you think she is...... oh oh, a mystery threatens...

Love the foot painter cartoon. it made me laugh out loud. I've just bought some mouth painter Christmas cards so I'll have to have a look to see if there are any impressions of lips and tounges on them.
