Mr W. et al: a community event on art & disability (Film Festival Ambassador Screening)
March 9, 2:00 pm - 10:00 pmFree
Unit 15 and the RAI FILM FESTIVAL anthropology / ethnography / archaeology will come together to bring you a celebratory event about art and disability. The programme will include a work-in-progress exhibition, a panel discussion, a screening of WHY IS MR W. LAUGHING? and a participatory workshop that explores what it means to perceive and communicate differently.
WHY IS MR W. LAUGHING? is a cinematic portrait of three artists with different disabilities. Rather than making a film about inclusion, the film itself was produced inclusively through the pictorial worlds of each artist, focusing on their aesthetic obsessions and perspectives through their own videography.
This free-entry event seeks to contribute to an open, inclusive and discursive arts scene and to develop our understanding of how the experience of disability modulates the creative process.
Film screening: 6.30pm
Music from 8.30pm
