Here are some answers to some common questions we get!
If you still have questions or need more information, please send us your question at firstname.lastname@example.org
What arts experience do I need to join the community?
The community is open to Deaf and Disabled artists and creatives from all backgrounds, interests, and levels of experience. If you’re into art, this is the space for you!
What lived experience do I need to join the community?
Claiming disability as an identity is not the same experience for everyone. Disability as an identity can have repercussions for some and be empowering for others. You do not have to prescribe to any concept of “lived experience” to be here, if you have experience living with a disability, you’re welcome to join!
How much does it cost to join?
If you’re an artist or creative with a disability, access to the community is free!
If you don’t identify as a creative with a disability but want to stay in the know on what’s happening in disability arts, check out our membership plans for allies and cultural workers.
What’s the difference between a Community Member and a Paid Member?

If I join the community, who can see my profile?

I no longer want to be a part of this community. How do I stop?
