#beddingout for #occhat 9th April 2013


Tonight, #occhat are discussing a fantastic artwork that is being created this week by Liz Crow(@RGPLizCrow), with support from Dawn Willis (@Quinonostante). Liz will be Tweeting through Dawn to take part in the chat- its a great opportunity to ask her questions ahead of the 48 hour performance art extravaganza.

The work has relevance and importance, relating to narratives of disability and empowerment: what the lives of people demonised in the media as “benefit scroungers” actually represent: and how our occupations (such as creating art) play into mainstream understanding of disability and social security, and how they enable us to create our own story and promote our agency in a world still full of barriers. Join us at 8pm BST on 9th April 2013 to talk about this, on the #occhat tag as usual, and the project will be collated on the #beddingout tag over the next few days.
