Bodies of Work
Website and/or Calendar Links
Bodies of Work is a network of artists and organizations whose art showcases and celebrates the disability experience. From the local to the international, our bodies of work explore innovative forms of artistic expression, derived from unique bodies and minds. We explore the disability experience, advance the rights of disabled people, and widen society’s understanding of what it means to be human.
We are a consortium of more than 50 of Chicago’s most recognized cultural, academic, healthcare and social service organizations, and are housed in UIC’s Department of Disability and Human Development.
Bodies of Work, a network of artists and organizations, is a catalyst for disability arts and culture that illuminate the disability experience in new and unexpected ways.
Beyond the creation of disability arts and culture festivals, we provide a forum for ongoing programs that honor and explore the accomplishments of local, national and international artists. We also offer information to cultural venues about providing access and accommodations for both artists and audiences with disabilities.
