I just read this article from Disability Arts Online. The article explores the barriers and the positives to connecting online written by Mathew Reason.
I work as an arts facilitator with people with learning disabilities. Its such a joy to see how the arts can impact people’s lives by bringing people to gather around a table, filled with paints, paper, clay, paint brushes, a good cup of tea and lots of laughter and sharing of ideas and thoughts.
Since covid hit I have not been able to see a lot of the people I was working with for over a year. Arts participation has gone online but its not always accessible and in easy reach for everyone.
