[VIDEO] Right after watching the Critical Discourse discussion of disability and art, these respondents stopped to share their own insights and learning. Each night, response stations will be available for the public to share their opinions.

Saturday night's Critical Discourse panel- Chris Smit, Neil Marcus and Petra Kuppers- discussed disability and art and their roles and voices in society, and involved the audience in a participatory engagement with the realities of disability in our society and the value of interdependence rather than striving for independence.

This video is a collection of responses to the Critical Discourse: Art, Disability, Images, Bodies event on Saturday, October 4. 

Immediately following the program, two response stations were available for anyone to step in front of the camera and respond to anything discussed by the panelists. Whether in agreement or disagreement, all voices were welcomed to share their thoughts.

The response stations will continue to be available at each Critical Discourse event, and broadcast here on The Rapidian the following day.

The full conversation between the three can be viewed here:
