IMPACT 0081: INCLUSIVE ART SPACES FOR PEOPLE OF ALL ABILITIES
Alecia Neo co-founded Brack, a platform for socially engaged art, and Unseen Art Initiatives, a volunteer-run platform which advocates for inclusive art practices and artistic collaborations across abilities.
“AT UNSEEN ART INITIATIVES, WE SEEK TO RESTORE A SENSE OF AGENCY IN YOUTH AND TO AMPLIFY THE WORK OF DISABLED ARTISTS.”
“WHAT MIGHT AN ART EDUCATION SYSTEM LED BY STUDENTS WITH VISUAL-IMPAIRMENTS LOOK LIKE? CAN THERE BE A NEW CRITERIA FOR EVALUATING ART MADE IN THE ABSENCE OF SIGHT? WHAT DOES IT MEAN FOR THESE YOUNG PEOPLE TO ACT ON THEIR OWN TERMS?”
