Dis-Ease: Drawing Disability and the Body

Date: Saturday 8 February 2020

Time: 6:30-8:30pm

Address: RAW Labs, Norton Quays, Royal Albert Wharf, London, E16 2QP

Dis-Ease: Drawing Disability and The Body is an experimental life drawing class exploring social discomfort when it comes to issues surrounding the body-minds of disabled people. Led and modelled by two chronically ill artists, this event aims to bring back agency and power to disabled people over how they are perceived by others. You are invited to stare, observe and learn, whilst gently leaning into the uncomfortable feelings that might arise during the session. You will hear the model speak from their own experiences and present their body as they would like it to be understood, in all of its nuance and complexity.

Price: Regular £10, Concession (student, low income or RAW resident) £7
