Speaker

Raquel Meseguer

I'm interested in widening access for people with invisible impairments, challenging the etiquette of our public spaces and collectively re-imaging how we use our public space.

This Lunchtime Talk will be broadcast live on Watershed's YouTube channel

Raquel will share thoughts from her recent research around disabled experiences of technology, connection and gathering. The research will be based on frank chats around these questions: 

- What tech could we, as disabled artists, not live without? 
- How do we create meaningful connection in our work, and in our lives? 
- What technology or strategies foster belonging in disabled and non-disabled spaces?

Her hunch at the time of writing, before she begins the interviews, is that there is tech that humanises and gathers us, and tech that dehumanises and scatters us. 

Join us to see how close or far off the mark this proves to be. 

* Crip is a term from disability scholarship and justice movements. It denotes a desire “to jolt people out of their everyday understandings of bodies and minds, normalcy & deviance” A. Kafer, Queer, Feminist, Crip.

This talk will be Captioned and BSL Interpreted.

Join us on Fri 27th November, 13:00-14:00 for the talk and to take part in the discussion afterwards.
