Mr W. et al: a community event on art & disability (RAI Film Festival Ambassador screening)

9 February 2019, 5:00pm - 11:00pm

Unit 15 and the RAI FILM FESTIVAL anthropology / ethnography / archaeology will come together this February to bring you a celebratory event about art and disability. The programme will include a work-in-progress exhibition, a panel discussion, a screening of WHY IS MR W. LAUGHING? and a participatory workshop that explores what it means to perceive and communicate differently.

WHY IS MR W. LAUGHING? is a cinematic portrait of three artists with different disabilities. Rather than making a film about inclusion, the film itself was produced inclusively through the pictorial worlds of each artist, focusing on their aesthetic obsessions and perspectives through their own videography.

This free-entry event seeks to contribute to an open, inclusive and discursive arts scene and to develop our understanding of how the experience of disability modulates the creative process.

This event is organised by RAI FILM FESTIVAL ambassador Seyed Samavati in collaboration with Brunel University and the RAI FILM FESTIVAL 2019 anthropology / ethnography / archaeology.
