Join us on Zoom to learn from Pato Hebert and aAliy A. Muhammad about their work as artists and organizers in health and disability justice movements. Building on the themes shared in the Everyone I Know Is Sick film series, especially the program’s invitation “to understand disability as a common experience rather than an exception to the norm,” this conversation provides an opportunity to center disability justice and the crucial role artists play in justice movements, community building, and organizing.  For more information about Hebert’s and Muhammad’s work we encourage you to read their conversation Art is at the Heart of Disability Justice published in June 2023.  This program will be moderated by Sarah Watson, director of the Murphy Institute at CUNY SLU.


This event is funded by the CUNY LGBTQIA+ Consortium, and presented in connection with Visual AIDS and the Day With(out) Art 2023: Everyone I Know Is Sick.  We encourage everyone to view Everyone I Know is Sick videos in advance of this December 13 virtual program -- all videos are now available to view online free at https://dwa.visualaids.org/Watch-Everyone-I-Know-Is-Sick.


Hosted by the CUNY School of Labor and Urban Studies.  

Presented in collaboration with Visual AIDS.
