This hub is all about being heard and making connections. Each event is meant to aid in the development of a voice, whether that be on an individual level or in the context of community advocacy. These events are meant to be a safe space where everyone - disabled and non-disabled people are welcome! As always, we will go with the slow and move at the speed of trust.

The "Be Heard: Body, Breath and Voice Workshop" with Traci Foster will focus on participants learning to use their body, breath, and voice to vibrantly express and communicate with ease and pleasure in everyday life and as a creative professional. Together, we will sing for the health of it.

Similarly, the "Creative Cuddle Corner" will be a safe space for individuals to take a "time out" to hang out and create or simply receive positive, non-sexual touch that every human needs through cuddle and snuggles. Consent policies will be conveyed and displayed.

Finally, The Axis of Access: Performance & Culture Conversation will be a time for bringing together artists, arts organizations, and creative community members in a discussion about disability art and culture in Saskatchewan as well as the political right to be in your body; to be seen and heard; and to create! Invited participants include recognized disability artists, advocates and cultural leaders. We will be talking about not just what is being done, but what can be done in the future to further understanding and acceptance of disability art and culture in our community and beyond.

Each event will be held in-person at the Artesian in Regina and is FREE to attend. We hope to see you there! The space is wheelchair accessible and also has gender-neutral washrooms. Unfortunately, due to a shortage of interpreters, ASL will not be available for the Creative Cuddle Corner or the Be Heard: Body, Breath, and Voice Workshop, but ASL interpretation will be available upon request for The Axis of Access: Performance & Culture Conversation. Refreshments and light snacks will be provided.
