Creativity in the Time of COVID-19: Art as a Tool for Combating Inequity and Injustice

Jessica Stokes, Tushya Mehta, Anna Forest, Margaret Bice, Tessa Jazwinkski, and Alyssa DeTorrice

This roundtable discussion will feature a community of disabled undergraduate students who have been working to ensure the accessibility of the Creativity in the Time of COVID 19 project. At the center of the discussion will be their ongoing efforts to imagine accessibility beyond mere compliance while simultaneously navigating inaccessibility in their student life. They will discuss key topics including disability culture, accessible design outcomes and processes, as well as the role of creativity in creating access.
