Learn to reshape your foundational expectations and create narratives, worlds, and experiences built from an anti-ableist, inclusive perspective, and open up more inclusive, creative opportunities for storytelling.

Imaginative worlds, whether in theatrical, new media, interactive/immersive, or gaming spaces, are often created from a perspective that excludes communities and limits the way audiences interact with the narratives presented. In this hybrid panel, we will explore new ways to imagine these experiences and universes from conception to performance, and discover how exploring inclusion and access creates new pathways for creative storytelling.

Discussions of ableism, racism, classism, sexism, and other historical oppressions.
