What:

Re-telling disabled stories. Challenging ‘Inspiration Porn’ and Celebrating the Stories of Disabled People

Join Rooted in Rights and the D Center for an afternoon of storytelling and disability culture. In this workshop, we will discuss the topic of ‘Inspiration Porn’ and why its harmful messaging perpetuates ableist narratives that denigrate the lives of disabled people. As well we will facilitate a safe and creative space for attendees to share and celebrate their stories.

Disability is not a ‘brave struggle’ or ‘courage in the face of adversity’… disability is an art. It’s an ingenious way to live.
