In January, we are bringing together the threads of these conversations in a panel discussion that will connect artists with tangible community resources. This panel addresses scarcity and access to resources, as well as creative solutions that foster space for individual and community well-being.
The Access & Alternatives panel will feature Courtney Kirkby, representing the Tiger Lotus Co-operative Wellness Centre. Courtney will speak about the Tiger Lotus Centre’s alternative access models for complementary medicine to reach under-served populations, and reduce the load on an overburdened provincial health system. Joining Courtney Kirby is Montreal-based journalist Aimee Louw, whose work intersects with accessibility, disability justice, sexuality, and undoing settler fantasies. Aimee will speak about developing creative communities with the politics of accessibility justice and social support networks, and how normalizing accessible spaces is an act of community care and individual wellbeing.
