In May 2018, the Canada Council for the Arts began working with the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) and a team of university researchers in order to carry out a study which aims to document the Deaf and disability arts practices in Canada.
Call for participation | INTERVIEWS | Deaf or disabled artists:
Call for participation | FOCUS GROUPS | Members of artistic and cultural organizations:
Led by a team composed of Deaf, disabled, and allied researchers and artists from various universities, this research will contribute to a better understanding of:
