Off-Leash Area’s “Off-Kilter” Program for Artists with Disabilities
Off-Leash Area’s “Off-Kilter” Program for Artists with Disabilities:
Announcing Four Community Gatherings During the Month of March
Are you frustrated with the ableist tendencies of mainstream performing arts? Do you wish you
had a chance to discuss inequities of people with disabilities in the performing arts community? Want to
learn more about our Off-Kilter Program from past participants? Or maybe just looking to meet and
connect with folks in the community you don’t already know? Join us in conversation and gathering as
we develop not only this program further but aim to broaden our impact as well.
As a veteran performing arts company in Minneapolis whose leadership is made up of 50%
people with disabilities, Off-Leash Area is dedicated to making space for people/artists/audiences with
disabilities. We invite folks with disabilities and advocates to come discuss their needs and desires from
programs like ours and the broader Twin Cities performing arts. Our conversations will be led by a
shared passion in advocacy about artistic diversity and justice, and equitable representation of artists
with disabilities both onstage and as arts leaders.
These conversations are also a chance to be in community with each other, all while having a
great, sociable time! Your thoughts and identities hold necessary space and will be respected here in
relating community. Sweet and savory refreshments will be provided!
