Call For Proposals: Cripping the Arts in Canada

 
Until very recently, disability, crip, D/deaf, and Mad arts (d/c/D/M arts) have been included in the art world in such a way that normalizes us as outsides rather than meaningfully propels our art sector. Categorizations of our art as ‘outsider art’ or ‘art brut’ have delegitimized our artistic voices and depoliticized our art (Gorman, 2007); inaccessible environments, equipment, technology, and programming have excluded us from artistic development and cultural participation; systemic ableism and institutionalized poverty have prevented us from accessing the funding needed to sustain our artistic practice. But this special issue of the Canadian Journal of Disability Studies aims to build on the excitement d/c/D/M arts is currently generating in Canada by capturing how d/c/D/M artists, curators, arts administrators, and activists are resisting being normalized within and by the art world and are instead cripping the arts, that is developing new ways of creating art and sustaining art practices, changing the kinds of art we encounter, and innovating new ways of engaging with art.

Call For Proposals: Institutional Survivorship

 

The Huronia Regional Centre, a residential facility for persons diagnosed with intellectual disabilities, operated in Ontario for 133 years until after a long and difficult history it was shut down in 2009. In this special journal issue, in honour of the work accomplished by Huronia survivors, we are interested in the experiences of disability and disablement both within and beyond experiences of institutionalization, and look to explore the meaning of survivorship as it pertains to institutionalization and disability.
