your holiday guide for this weekend

Some suggestions on how to support disabled creatives this holiday season!

Every year, I'm surprised at how early people get going on the holiday swag. It seems it gets earlier and earlier.

My neighbors were dressing the front of their house with Christmas lights only a few days into November meanwhile, next door, I was on a mission to keep the pumpkin I carved for Halloween on our doorstep from rotting.

But December is here now and I'm starting to ease into the next phase of festivities - wondering what stocking stuffer I should get for my mother-in-law.

If you're thinking this weekend about gifts for friends and family and would like to support creatives with disabilities, I wanted to share some of these great resources on where you might find fun gift ideas.

If you're in Toronto this weekend, be sure to check out the Disability Holiday Market!

The Disability Collective is a not-for-profit organization and community of disabled artists dedicated to celebrating and showcasing disability in the arts.
