Why not me, why not now?

If you're not familiar with the National accessArts Centre, they're an organization that provides training, creation, exhibition, and presentation opportunities for artists with disabilities.

I recently discovered the Professional-track Film Ensemble that the NaAC hosts, which is a cohort of filmmakers who meet weekly to expand their practice and explore new ways of creating film & media. 

Jody Lynn Roll, Paul Brain, and Kathy M. Austin are three artists currently taking part in this project and sat down with CBC to discuss their art and experiences as disabled creatives.

Watch the interviews for all three artists below!
