WHAT?!? Sins Invalid has a local Spring performance! Please join us!
DISABILITY LIBERATED:Mourn the Dead and Fight like Hell for the LivingMarch 8th and 9th 2015 Disability Liberated was curated for Disability Incarcerated, an event hosted at UC Berkeley*, bringing together scholars, students, activists, and community members to map the intersections of policing, imprisonment, and the disabled body. This event seeks to step into the conspicuous void within critiques of the “prison industrial complex” - namely the absence of discussion of disability oppression, despite the disproportionate representation of people with disabilities within prisons and gated institutions.Disability Liberated includes an altar building in conjunction with a Sins Invalid performance centering the stories and voices of people at threat of and surviving violence within the intersections of ableism and the prison industrial complex.There will be no charge for the event.Artists currently include Leroy Moore, Kiyaan Abadani, Patty Berne, Nomy Lamm, Lisa Ganser, Todd Herman, Micah Bazant, Olegario Martinez, and Damon Johnson.Sun, March 8, 5:30p, Altar construction with community, 120 Kroeber Hall (College/Bancroft), UC BerkeleyMon, March 9, 4:30p, Performance, Booth Auditorium in Boalt Hall (College/Bancroft), UCB* UC Berkeley sponsors include the Haas Institute for a Fair and Inclusive Society; Center for the Study of Law and Society; HIFIS’s Race & Educational Disparities Cluster, Diversity and Democracy Cluster and Disability Studies Cluster; Dean Judith Little, School of Education; Dean Carla Hesse, Division of Social Sciences; Social and Cultural Studies Program; School of Education; Canadian Studies; The Doreen K.
