About the event
“Amplified Voices” celebrates the creativity and raw storytelling told by our artists living with disabilities. By questioning the limits to space made for Disability culture, this exhibition navigates the stigma and barriers many artists face. These works challenge conventional ideas and transform traditional art practices into one that is humane, therapeutic, and liberating.
