WEAVE Capacity Building LabDay

Activity: Participating in or organising an eventPublic Engagement Event


Archives, dance, disability and ablebodiedness raises several questions that need to be more explored in terms of narratives, language and equality. With this in mind, the COVUNI team has curated a Capacity-Building LabDay where we bring together researchers, artists, archivists and practitioners to reflect on the intersections and challenges of archives, dance and disability,

Questions being considered include:

How can we develop a vocabulary to talk about disability dance and archives?
How can we use that vocabulary as a tool to make disability dance visible in the archive in a way that is not focussed on ablebodiedness?
What can archives do to start to explore these timely questions?
What might artists need to consider when thinking about offering work to archives?
Who has the power to decide which archives/traces/documents of (disability) dance will be preserved for the future in a professional, sustainable way?
