Apr 30 –
Join the LightHouse for the Blind to celebrate diversity by attending this special viewing party for the online release of “Birthing, Dying, Becoming Crip Wisdom”, a Sins Invalid production. Sins Invalid, is a disability justice production, celebrating the power of embodiment and sexuality, stripping taboos off disability in order to offer a vision of beauty that includes all bodies and communities.
In, “Birthing, Dying, Becoming Crip Wisdom”, a filmed version of the live performance, 13 performers bring evocative explorations of creation, aging and mortality, a journey through genesis, transformative power and earth. More information about the program overview can be found at the following link: http://sinsinvalid.org/blog/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/Sins-Invalid-2016-Program.pdf
The viewing party (with audio description and close captioning) will be followed by a group discussion, offering a safe space for community members to reflect on the various performances, discuss and share their own experiences living with a disability.
The community discussion will be led by Laura Millar, the Sexual Health Services Program Coordinator and Serena Olsen the Evening and Weekend Program Coordinator. We will discuss topics related to gender, sexual orientation, race, class, and aging specifically for people who are blind or have low vision and the impact of these intersecting identities on our lives. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to examine, celebrate, and embrace our intersecting identities. Sins Invalid request a suggested donation of up to $10 per person, donations will be collected at the viewing party. Must be 18 or older to attend.
