This week I sat down virtually with Sean Lee, Director of Programming at Tangled Art + Disability, to talk about radically accessible curation, the transformative possibilities of disability as disruption, and the exciting work of Tangled and Bodies in Translation. So many links!

- Check out the work of Bodies in Translation: Activist Art, Technology & Access, including their Cripping the Arts symposium and their Vital Practices in the Arts resource guide!
- Here are some other references Sean made:

- Amanda Cachia on “the politics of creative access”
- The Smithsonian’s guidelines for accessible exhibition design
- An FAQ on relaxed performances from Tourettes Hero aka Jessica Thom

The podcast theme song is “Mesh Shirt” by Mom Jeans off their album “Chub Rub.” Listen to the whole album here or learn more about them here. Sean’s theme song was “It’s Gonna Be Okay, Baby” by MUNA.
Secret Feminist Agenda is recorded and produced by Hannah McGregor on the traditional and unceded territories of the Squamish, Musqueam, and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations.
