Conversation #1: Feedback and disability arts
Sometimes it is hard to ask for feedback, it can make artists feel anxious or nervous about their work. This conversation is designed to help artists feel comfortable seeking and implementing feedback as a crucial component of creative development and professional practice. It will also discuss the intersection of arts and disability in the work of artists with disability and/or who are d/Deaf, and how this may impact the feedback process.
