Event description
SPACED Zine hot off the press! Created by Waiting Room Arts with Deaf & Disabled artists, poetically tackling all taboos to create SPACE

About this event

The Waiting Room Arts Company brings you Spaced, a sought-after Zine and Digital Zine performance as part of FUSE Spring 2021. Australian Artists Jessica Kapuscinski-Evans, Chelle Destefano, Andy Jackson, Alex Creece, Liel Bridgford, Lauren Rosenberg, and Stevie (Stephanie Russell- Farnham) collaborate to create art that tackle the taboo subjects within Disability and Mental Health, with creative facilitation by Milly Cooper and Jess Kapuscinski-Evans.

This Eventbrite form is to order your limited- edition copy of the SPACED Zine, which is free during FUSE Festival (up until 18 September) and $5 until 11 December 2021. So order your copy quick! Contact us also for alternative formats.

SPACED is a cry for solidarity between members of the disability community and those who identify as D/deaf. It gets deep and meaningful about mental illness and physical impairment. It tackles all the forbidden subjects like religion, advocacy and curing disabilities. It asks questions like that funny one: does art makes you mentally ill or do you have to be mentally ill to make art?

SPACED is one of many projects to come that are works of art that Jess wished she knew about as a kid, but didn’t because of the mythology and stigma around being D/deaf and/or disabled and mentally ill. It unites live performance, visual art, dance, the online and the old-fashioned printed word. It brings together emerging and established artists with different experiences of disability who also come from other marginalised communities, to celebrate the many voices that exist in our society.

Spaced is THE space to shatter stigma and celebrate our whole selves; Spaced is for the children and young people who crave to see their experiences and bodies reflected in our literature and live streams.

If you would like to know more about this project, please email: thewaitingroomarts@gmail.com

Spaced: the Online Zine performance, is presented on 9 September, 6:30pm via Zoom. The performance is Auslan interpreted and audio described.

More about the Waiting Room Arts Company -

Making her curatorial debut, Jess Kapuscinski-Evans weaves writing, dance and visual arts to present thought-provoking commentary that reflect the human condition, identity and community. She asks questions about disability advocacy, dogma, systems and experiences of being in the Deaf, Disabled and Mental Health communities.
