Her serene face is gently looking out into the distance. Her legs are positioned in a mid-walking stance. One of her leg braces is visible. Her hair is pulled back into a ballet bun. She is wearing a tulle dress; dark top, light and fluffy skirt. She is in a well lit dance studio where mirrors are visible and her reflection is present.

Thursday, May 27th at 7 PM Eastern Standard Time

The Disability Collective is proud to present a screening of Kim Kitchen’s Able to Disabled: My Changing Landscape! Join us on Thursday, May 27th at 7 PM EST to collectively watch Kim Kitchen’s soundscape piece, followed by a discussion and Q&A session with Kim.

 

The Disability Collective previewed a segment of Kim’s soundscape piece at our inaugural event, ART IS MOVEMENT: A Virtual Showcase and Fundraiser earlier this year. Due to high demand, we are thrilled to bring Kim’s full piece to life at this interactive screening event.
