New initiative features alumni of residency fellowship established by 3Arts and Bodies of Work
Wednesday, January 20, 2021
3Arts launched the Disability Culture Leadership Initiative (DCLI), a new online platform created to elevate Deaf and disabled artists and encourage the arts and culture sector to prioritize Disability Culture in programming and organizational efforts. DCLI features candid video conversations among eleven Chicago-based Deaf and disabled alumni of the 3Arts Residency Fellowships at UIC. The launch of the DCLI stems from work that began six years ago, when 3Arts partnered with UIC’s Bodies of Work to establish the 3Arts Residency Fellowship. Bodies of Work is directed by Carrie Sandahl. Read the full press release: 3arts.org/news/-disability-culture-leadership-initiative/.
