“People misunderstand… I was talking survival, and they were talking rights, independence, more abstract concepts. Community is survival.” - Nick Dupree


I wanna be with you everywhere is a gathering of, by, and for disabled artists and writers and anyone who wants to get with us for a series of crip meet-ups, performances, talks and other social spaces of surplus, abundance and joy. It refuses policies of individuation and inclusion in favor of (and in the flavor of) whatever disability aesthetics has in bodymind—which we won’t know ‘til it shows us. Programs and events will unfold across each day, but there’s also going to be a major sense of ease. We’re bridging coasts and working on crip time so we’ll announce the full program soon ;) [winky face emoticon]
