2018 Disabled Artists Gift Guide

Posted in Featured Bloggers, and Gift Guide

The Disability Arts : Bay Area Holiday Gift Guide is back.

Are you looking for a gift for that picky relative? Want something that supports disabled artists? Do you want to show your pride in the disability community?

This is the place to start looking for one-of-a-kind, thoughtful, politicly correct, disability-related gifts.

With December and the New Year drawing near and Kislev off to a good start, the season of gift guides is now upon us. Like many marginalized groups, the disability community has started to publish more and more gift guides showcasing products from artists, artisans, and entrepreneurs with disabilities.

We were inspired by Emily Ladau’s Original Disability Holiday Gift Guide which highlights a variety of goods on sale by independent disabled entrepreneurs worldwide as well as disability orgs worthy of a donation in a special someone’s name. It has yet to be updated this year, 2018, but it’s still valuable. Also showing the way are two yet-to-be-updated guides, Parenting Autistic Children with Love and Acceptance (PACLA) has just released their “annual gift guide and resource for #ActuallyAutistic run businesses, shops, artists, craftspeople, writers & more.” And, Meriah Nichols’ The Ultimate Gift Guide For Supporting Businesses With A Positive Connection To Disability.

And that’s just to name a few!

This year, Disability Arts/Bay Area is throwing its hat in the ring with a gift guide focused on disabled artists and artisans in the San Francisco Bay Area.
