The Disability Collective is seeking submissions from disabled artists of all art forms for No Body Left Behind, an online campaign centred around the disabled community’s concerns regarding the lifting of COVID-19 restrictions, including mask and vaccine mandates.
The Disability Collective is a not-for-profit organization and community of disabled artists dedicated to celebrating and showcasing disability in the arts. TDC strives to de-stigmatize disability and challenge perceptions of what disability looks like through promoting disabled artists in a variety of forms, including live performances, virtual showcases, visual art shows, readings, and more. We believe that disability can be defined in many ways, including physical impairments, mental health conditions, emotional disabilities, sensory disabilities, cognitive challenges, neurodiversity, and chronic illnesses.
We are looking for 10 disabled artists who are interested in having their work featured as part of this campaign. We will feature each artist individually in a 1-2 minute video posted every few days throughout the campaign on our social media, compiling into one large video at the end of the campaign. This video clip will showcase your art while giving you an opportunity to share your experience as a disabled person during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are looking for artists who are comfortable sharing their story online.
