About the event
This event is to introduce the public to mixed-ability dance and dance from disability perspectives.
As well, the event is a chance for dancers who experience disability to come together and experience the work of colleagues in other cities.
Films and video will include work by artists such as Alice Sheppard, Danielle Peers, Geoff McMurchy, All Bodies Dance Project, and Embrace Arts. There will be video excerpts of dance artists based on six continents, with a focus on the West Coast of Turtle Island.
Please do not use any scented or fragranced products before coming to the event.
Feel free to bring a snack to share, with a list of ingredients (large print or size 18 font). Please avoid bringing common allergens (i.e. No nuts, peanuts, shellfish, wheat, gluten, milk/cow dairy). Thank-you!
Here is the event RSVP form. Space is limited.
Accessible washrooms for all genders are available next door at the Victoria Disability Resource Centre.
The Flux Media Gallery entrance is level off of Fort Street. The door is not automatic, so there will be a volunteer near the door available to open it.
Please request interpreting, captioning and describing by January 20th:
-A sign language interpreter is available.
-Captioning and transcribing are confirmed.
-Audio description: Some of the videos have audio description available. There will be live describing for the remaining videos, by artists who are learning to describe dance.

For other questions and access requests, contact Joanne or include it when you RSVP.
