Talk of the day: Biscuits Beyond Borders - A Call to Action
Jess Thom, co-founder of Touretteshero, may or may not lead a secret double life as a superhero. Artist, writer and expert activist, Jess has had tics since she was a child but was not diagnosed with Tourettes until she was in her 20s.
At a time seemingly defined by division and insularity, Jess Thom will share her personal experiences of inclusive practice. She will set out some of the simple yet powerful changes that can be made in public spaces such as theatres, museums and galleries to make them more accessible to those who are most frequently marginalised.
Reflecting on the opportunities presented by the Relaxed Venue methodology she developed as a Change Maker at Battersea Arts Centre, she will explore how the international context of disability arts and culture can shape expectations in local regions.
