Opulent Mobility 2017 Entries Open

Posted in Call for entry, and Disability Art

from Laura Brody extolling artists to submit pieces to Opulent Mobility 2017:

I want you to be excited and inspired to submit strong work to Opulent Mobility. It’s my responsibility as the developer and curator to engage artists to help make Opulent Mobility a truly radical showcase for re-imagining disability. So I am offering a challenge.

I challenge you to imagine a world where mobility, disability, and access can be opulent.

I challenge you to approach the work with thoughtfulness, humor, creativity, and care.

Because if we do not imagine a better world, we can’t make one happen.

In return, I promise to share your work everywhere I can.
