Price: Free


Photographic portrait of Jamie Hale appearing on a video call on a laptop. They are wearing a blue checked shirt, red glasses and sitting in an electric wheelchair. The laptop is on a table next to a house plant and a wooden dog ornament. Part of a portrait is on the wall behind the laptop in an orange frame.

Join poet, writer and researcher Jamie Hale and four fellow disabled artists for this online conversation.
They will reflect on their different experiences and practices, and ask what it means to be a D/deaf or disabled artist in a pandemic.
The artists will talk for 45 minutes, and then there will be 15 minutes of questions and answers.
You will be able to watch this event on Wellcome Collection’s YouTube channel, and submit questions in advance or during the event using Slido. Your microphone and camera will not be on. After booking a ticket you will receive an email with joining instructions.
Live captions will be provided by Stagetext, and BSL interpretation will be delivered by Michelle Wood.
A series of articles by Jamie Hale exploring ‘Art, activism and access’, and featuring some of the artists taking part in this event, is also available to read and listen to.

BSL interpretation, speech to text transcription
