2017 Bay Area Disability Arts Gift Guide

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.

Now in it’s fourth year, Emily Ladau’s Original Disability Holiday Gift Guide 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.

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.”

This time last year, Meriah Nichols published 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.
