Queer disabled artists unpack community, connection, identity and arts practise.

This panel have been programmed in collaboration with the Midsumma Pathways Advisory Group and will feature a lineup of queer disabled artists as they unpack community, connection, identity and arts practise.
Facilitated by community leader and international award-winning disability advocate and activist Akii Ngo, the panel features celebrated artists and Pathways alumni Jamila Main (who luckily for us is now Naarm-based) and Patrick Gunasekera (all the way from Boorloo / Perth) alongside Deaf, Gay/Queer creative producer and director Sam Martin, and CEO of Arts Access Victoria Caroline Bowditch.
The panelists, whose lived experiences reflect a range of perspectives on arts practise, disability, neurodiversity, cultural identity and chronic illness will explore their experiences of queer joy and gathering through the lens of their diverse arts practices and community engagement.
Please note: Visual descriptions and audio introductions of speakers, artists, acts and displays are integrated into this event, enhancing accessibility for blind and low vision audiences attending.
