Creative Accessibility: Accessibility for Deaf Artists
Created in partnership with Arts AccessAbility Network of Manitoba
What does accessibility in the arts community mean? Join Chris De Guzman as he discusses his experience within the arts world as a Deaf Performer.
Creative Accessibility is a series of workshops that will explore disability art, the experiences of artists with disabilities and how to make art accessible. These workshops will be beneficial not only for emerging artists with disabilities, but artists at all levels of their career with and without disabilities.
Other Workshops in this Series:
June 23: Exploring Creative Access
June 25: Chronic Illness and Creativity
Christopher Bryan De Guzman was born in the Philippines but immigrated to Canada with his family a long time ago. As a small boy, he would capture the attention of family and friends through his impersonations, goofy characters or his latest dance moves, so when given the chance to ham-it-up in mime, Christopher knew it would be a sure fit. Christopher feels fortunate to have the opportunity, with his fellow founding troupe members, to show the non-deaf communities how naturally and beautifully the Deaf can act and entertain the masses. Christopher has been professionally trained in mime, physical comedy and storytelling by the award winning Hot Thespian Action’s Shannon Guile.
