Julie Farrell Talk - an introduction to The Inklusion Guide: a kickass guide to making literature events accessible to disabled people

March 26, 2024 at 7:00pm - 8pm
We are very excited that Julie Farrell, author and award-winning poet, will be presenting a talk for SAU about The Inklusion Guide: a kickass guide to making literature events accessible to disabled people.
In her talk, Julie Farrell (co-author of the Inklusion Guide) will reflect upon how we can all implement the guide's advice on best access practices for organisations, collectives and workers across all of the arts sectors. Julie Farrell and B. D. Owens will also bring their experiences of activism into discussion; considering ways in which queerness and disability intersect. This event has been organised by members of the SAU Intersectional anti-oppression Subgroup.

The Inklusion Guide was co-authored by Julie Farrell and Ever Dundas. It is “a free, kickass guide to making literature [and arts] events accessible for disabled people. Summarising best-practice accessibility across hybrid, online and in-person events, the aims are to remove the mystery around access provisions, address challenges creatively, and ensure that organisers big and small are empowered to make their events accessible.” The Inklusion Guide can be useful for making events accessible across all of the arts sectors, and for the majority of Trade Union events too!
