I worked for DAWN Canada for three years as their communications officer. My time there is one of the primary reasons that disability rights are so close to my heart. I left six months ago so I was thrilled when they asked me to be a part of this year's National AccessAbility Week artistic showcase.

The theme this year is "Art as Protest" and the lineup is absolutely outstanding. If you love great music, poetry, dance, and disability art - this is the show for you! It's completely free and online so don't hesitate to sign up, no matter where you are!

Here are the details:

Hi, I'm Renée! (they/them)

I'm a queer, nonbinary, and disabled singer, songwriter and gender-affirming voice teacher.
