*The Disability/Arts/NYC Task Force (DANT) is an arts advocacy
organization committed to fostering disability artistry in New York City.
We support this artistry and simultaneously work to dismantle the
entrenched discriminatory practices and policies faced by disabled
artists. DANT is forming around a unique moment for disability arts and
artistry. We are witnessing bold artwork across genres and disciplines
that take up disability as a profound aesthetic and analytic value. And
yet, there are persistent obstacles that limit the possibilities for
disabled artists and disability artistry. DANT is well situated to name
this unique moment and to develop a movement for disability arts to thrive
in New York City.
