The Foreshore | Dignity and Access
Carmen Papalia and Joulene Tse Parent
Tuesday, January 23, 2018, 7pm
Off-site at the Vancouver Public Library, Strathcona Branch
Carmen Papalia and Joulene Tse Parent will discuss issues of cultural accessibility and human rights in the city, including Tse’s ongoing research on the history of Indigenous workers on the waterfront, as well as Papalia’s projects leading up to and including his recent conceptual work Open Access, a new, relational model for accessibility that sets a precedent for considerations of agency and power in relation to the disabling social, cultural, and political conditions in a given context.
