What can a body do?

TOC wants to challenge oppressive dominant narratives that situate peculiar body features as personal limitations rather than cultural tools.

Within the framework of the social model of disability, a disruptive curatorial practice have the power to subvert the normative narratives through shared creation, by shaping and re-presenting disability in public spaces.

For his first summer school ‘Focus on Abilities’ TOC Centre for Curatorial Practices is in Copertino and Frigole, Italy, focusing on the promotion of environmental sustainability through pet therapy and playful activities for people with disability. 

Diomede Stabile, activist and accessibility expert, and Rossella Piccinno, artist and filmmaker, are discussing and playing about accessibility and techniques of active listening and interaction for artists and curators.
