Disability Justice Research by filmpro with ten
filmpro is a Lambeth based organisation of digital artists, led by Disabled and neurodivergent practitioners, who ourselves experience barriers to making our art and participating in movements.
We are commissioning the research project filmpro with ten, the first of its kind, to explore the relationship between art and Disability justice in South London.
We are looking into how creative skills can liberate us from all systems of oppression.
We want you to be a part of it!
We would like to know the tools you have as artists and organisers that can make our movements for justice more radical and expressive. Our goal with this research is to encourage artists and campaigners to work together to address the oppressive systems that disable us in multiple forms and evaluate the presence of ableism within both the arts and activism scenes.
We want to hear what is working for you, and what needs to change.
A better life is possible for everyone but no one can do it for us. We all have to be part of it, and we believe art can be a powerful way of making that a reality.
filmpro is in solidarity with all people with impairments, made disabled by inaccessible systems and infrastructure. We recognise how everyone is impacted by ableism and that those within our community can be multiply oppressed. We are concerned with ending all systems of oppression, especially but not exclusively, those that most negatively affect people of the Global Majority, trans and incarcerated people.
This project will take place over the next 18 months with 4 phases.
We are currently looking for contributors for the research stage of our project.
