CALL FOR PARTICIPANTS | Research study on Deaf and disability arts practices in Canada
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.
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:
1) the issues surrounding Deaf and disability arts;
2) collaborations between Deaf and disability arts sectors and art sectors more broadly and;
3) practices which allow for the recognition, support, and promotion of the practices of Deaf and disability artists.
Approximately 30 Deaf and disabled artists, as well as 50 members of artistic and cultural organizations, will be consulted in June, July, and August 2018.
● Are you a Deaf or disabled artist who would like to participate in an interview?
● Are you a member of an artistic or cultural organization who would like to participate in a focus group?
You are invited to contact the research team at the following email address:
