Storytelling and Self-Advocacy · Lincoln Center

As we reflect on the Disabled activists who fought for the passage of the ADA, we know there is still a great deal of work to do to have the Disabled experience represented in the arts. This multi-session series, taking place once a month throughout the year, is open to teenagers and young adults with disabilities to learn about disability history, disability culture and storytelling.

During the kick-off event on July 18, Jermaine Greaves, a Lincoln Center intern and disability advocate, presents disability rights history and moderates a panel of artists and designers with disabilities, followed by an activity on storytelling. As the group meets periodically throughout the year, participants will explore aspects of disability culture, hear from Disabled leaders in the arts and continue to hone their own storytelling, as a foundation to their artistic and advocacy practice.

Captioning, audio description and ASL interpretation is available for all events. To request additional accommodations, please contact [email protected] or 212-875-5375.

Calling all makers! Get inspired by this hands-on project and explore a work of art using materials you can find at home:

This week, make a portrait of an important woman in your life or your neighborhood to celebrate all the things they do! New activities launch each week, and don't forget to share your creations using @metmuseum and #MetKidsCreate.

This artwork is by Alice Neel, who was an American artist who often painted families and people in her community. The woman in this painting, Mercedes Arroyo, was an activist who wanted to improve her East Harlem neighborhood, where Neel lived and painted for many years. She sits with her arm resting on the back of a chair and tilts her head to the right. She seems to be deep in thought. What might she be thinking

As part of our #MetAccess program, every month we invite Disabled and Deaf artists to respond to works in The Met's collection that spark their curiosity or inspiration. ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
This month, Alison O'Daniel reflects on this late 9th – early 10th century bowl:⁣⁣⁣⁣

"In my films I write open captions as a third narrative space equal to images and sound. My films acknowledge my hard of hearing perspective as a value system. ⁣

I’ve been thinking a lot about perceptions of partial or fragmented existences. A more interesting vantage point is born when the commitment to the ‘whole’ collapses. ⁣

The missing story of this Iranian bowl’s breaking, and that its new form is like an ear, the interior wrapped with its own caption—'God is Sovereign'—becomes a form of storytelling that, for me, is more generous and profound than originally ever intended. From my perspective, it is sovereign."⁣
