For Disability Pride Month, join artist thai Lu in an interactive sensory workshop. In this 60 minutes workshop, artists thai Lu will build knowledge around neurodivergence through the everyday ritual of getting dressed. The term Neurodivergence encompasses brain functioning that processes information differently than typically considered. People who are neuro-diverse are part of the robust disability community! Though not exhaustive, some examples of neurodiversity are ADHD, dyslexia, autism, Asperger's syndrome, dyscalculia, epilepsy, and hyperlexia. You do not need a diagnosis to attend the workshop! If disability or neurodivergence is something that resonates with your experience, or if you want to participate and celebrate Disability Pride Month, please attend!

This event is open to IDA members and members of the disability community regardless of their membership status. At the end of the workshop, participants will be encouraged to take the Nonfiction Media Makers with Disabilities Survey on their own, and as a small token of appreciation for taking the survey, we will provide a free Doc Lover Membership.

In this workshop, participants will co-create new relationships with their clothing and think about the sensorial worlds and disabled knowledge that emerge from them. Thai and the NAI team (Ranell Shubert and Cielo Saucedo) welcome you to think about your sensual world and how that can apply to your practice. 

Arrive as you are. Wear something you find pleasurable or wear what feels comfortable. 

ASL interpretation and CART captioning (in English) will be provided for this event.
