In this last episode of Season 2 of SPEAK, Rachel and Fin invite guests to talk about the role of H’Art/BEING Studio in Ontario over the past 20 years. They talk to professor Michael Orsini (University of Ottawa) about the changes in disability rights since the beginning of BEING. Professor Eliza Chandler (Ryerson University) also talks about the importance of having access to a disability arts archive and Bucko shares his thoughts about being a disabled artist.
This episode marks the first half of a two-part mini-series on the evolution of BEING Studio over the past 20 years. This part focuses on late artist Irene Beck and the storytelling power of art. Artists and family members come together to react to and remember Irene’s paper bag collection, “Sidekick”.
