Disruptions 3: Sky Cubacub & the QueerCrip Dress Reform Movement

Disruptions 3: Sky Cubacub & the QueerCrip Dress Reform Movement

Ottawa Art Gallery - Galerie d'art d'Ottawa (map)

Sky Cubacub will discuss their manifesto with Kelly Fritsch, Assistant Professor in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at Carleton University. Members of the Carleton community will model examples of Sky’s Rebirth Garments.

As Sky writes, “we maintain the notion of Radical Visibility, a movement based on claiming our bodies and, through the use of bright colors, exuberant fabrics, and innovative designs, highlighting the parts of us that society typically shuns. Through Radical Visibility, we refuse to assimilate and can create a Queer and Disabled dress reform movement.”

Admission is free and everyone is welcome! Light refreshments will be provided.

Access info: The Ottawa Art Gallery is a fully accessible space, with all-persons washrooms. ASL interpretation will be provided. Service animals are welcome. Please help us make this a scent-free environment.

Genderful! Brooklyn '19

It’s never too early to give folks the opportunity to explore identity or to learn about the many forms of gender expression. Genderful! is a free event for children and their caregivers, focused on exploring gender through curiosity, creativity, and community.

Rebirth Garments will be doing a Fashion and Performance workshop:

How do you make/ hack your wardrobe to make it fully celebrate the intersection of all of your identities?  We will explore the idea of Radical Visibility, a Disabled Queer dress reform movement based on highlighting the parts of us that society typically shuns. Sky will be continuously doing interactive draping demos using a no sew method of designing, only scissors to cut holes in scraps, yardage and old clothing, which works best to promote creativity and imagination. This is hands on dress up time and body movement work, and a mini dance party all in one. Other activities include taking about the relationships between “body + garment” as well as the idea of “process as performance”. This is a drop in/ drop out workshop, so feel free to come and go as you please!

Access info: The event will be fully wheelchair accessible.

Price: FREE
