Disability Pride Panel at 4W and WGSC Conference

April 10 @ 3:15 pm - 5:00 pm

We are back! This is a reschedule of a panel presentation that Disability Pride was going to do last April, before the pandemic hit and canceled it. We are now participating in a virtual version of this conference!
Disability Pride Madison will be presenting at the “Resistance And Reimagination: Gender, Change, And The Arts” conference, which is being co-convened by UW-Madison’s 4W Initiative: Women & Wellbeing In Wisconsin & The World, the UW-System Women’s And Gender Studies Consortium, and UW-Madison’s Gender and Women’s Studies Graduate Students!
Anyone and everyone is welcome to drop in on our session at this time!
Here is the link to join:

Our Abstract:
Disability Pride Madison is a grassroots organization that has produced the Disability Pride Festival for the last eight years. Performances at the festival all include at least one performer with a disability. Board members from DPM will cover Disability Justice, local disability politics and advocacy, intersectional identities, the importance of having community, economics of survival for a small, low-income grassroots group, how we are building networks of performers, makers and activists with disabilities and how activists and academics can inspire each other’s work, what we have learned about organizing groups of people across abilities and our plans for the future. We will also share how our work has shifted in light of the COVID19 pandemic.
