The Disability Collective is seeking submissions from disabled artists of all art forms to join us for The Disability Holiday Market, taking place on Sunday, December 10th at Artscape Wychwood Barns! This event will provide an opportunity for you to showcase and sell your work in a community-driven environment.
ABOUT THE DISABILITY COLLECTIVE
The Disability Collective (TDC) is the only fully disability-led performing arts organization in Toronto. Dedicated to celebrating and showcasing work created solely by disabled artists, TDC strives to de-stigmatize disability and challenge perceptions of disability by providing disabled artists with paid opportunities to share their work.
An ASL interpreter and ASL volunteers will be available. Sighted guides will be available to offer described tours of the Market. A quiet space will be available for folks to take a break from the Market. Sensory and fidget toys will be provided. Access and venue guides will be available on our website by the end of November.
The safety of our attendees, artists, volunteers, and staff is our number one priority.
Masks are required for all attendees, artists, volunteers, and staff but may be removed temporarily for drinking and eating. Masks should fit snugly against the face without gaps; cloth masks should have at least two layers of fabric. Neck gaiters and bandanas are not permitted. We thank you in advance for your cooperation.

OUR COMMITMENT TO DIVERSITY
The Disability Collective is committed to reflecting the diversity of our community, and will make every effort to identify and remove any barriers to inclusion. We welcome and encourage submissions from individuals of any ethnicity, age, gender identity or expression, colour, country of origin, citizenship status, language, physical and mental ability, size, political affiliation, race, religion, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, or any other characteristics that make our communities and individuals unique. We recognize that disability has a compounded impact on those at the intersection of other marginalized communities, such as Black, Indigenous, and 2LGBTQIA+ communities, people of colour, women and femmes, fat people, religious minorities, and more. The Disability Collective seeks to empower disabled folks from all communities, and to break down barriers and stereotypes of what it means to be disabled.
We look forward to reviewing your submissions! Thank you for your interest.
