As our humanities research project progressed in 2022 and 2023, one of our current priorities was creating an online symposium that would take place on April 12, 2023. We had been putting together an engaging and informative program meant to provide valuable insight and challenge the negative misconceptions of disability and showcase how art can be a powerful tool for expression and activism.
Recently, I have made the effort to pursue community outreach in an effort to connect and broaden our insights into disability in the general public and the academic setting.
Being a part of the Humanities Collaborative has been an exciting, time-consuming, and crazy experience over the fall 2022 semester. We faced many challenges figuring out how music programs work and dealing with older computers owned by our student fellows.
