A dinner conversation between artist Kat Hawkins (UK) and producer /programmer /curator Lauren A Wright (US/UK).
Drawing on their practices, lived experiences, and learning from the disability justice movement, Kat and Lauren will offer a series of provocations for a discussion about how artists and arts workers can convene and work together sustainably in a way that honours their varied needs and capacities.
Kat is a feminist, queer, crip artist working with movement, language, time and eroticism. They are a PhD researcher at C-DaRE looking at The Role of an Understudy in Inclusive Dance and partnered with Candoco Dance Company.
