About DisArt

DisArt is a production company and arts and culture organization that focuses its energy on creating public art events that cultivate and communicate a Disabled culture. All of this work presents the highest quality, contemporary art done by Disabled artists from around the world.

We believe that expressions of a Disabled cultural identity can transform society from awareness to understanding to belonging, creating a community that enjoys the full and equitable participation of all Disabled people.

My Dearest Friends Project

During this time of sheltering in place, DisArt and artist Oaklee Thiele seek to document our collective experiences as a Disabled community. We invite you to submit written, audio, and video observations about your experiences with, reactions to, and ponderings on our current COVID-19 reality. Through this collaborative community-based project, we aim to find solace and togetherness in our shared experiences. Click for More Info  @mydearestfriendsproject
