The Sound of StorytellingAuthored on November 12, 2020
While Canadian sisters Tiffany and Inuk (Plqslq) don’t personally identify with disability, what they bring to the listener is an auditory sensation like no other, rooted in history and tradition and accessible to arts lovers with vision loss. Inuit throat singing, or katajjaq, is a form of musical performance uniquely found among Inuit peoples.

Bruce HorakAuthored on October 14, 2020
Performer and creator, Bruce Horak, lost over 90% of his sight to a childhood cancer called Bilateral Retinoblastoma. This talented human has toured across Canada, the USA and Europe. Often asked “How he sees the world”, Horak took up painting as an experiment to see if he could capture the essence of that question. “Assonating Thompson” is an exceptional creation that explores the stage and the canvas through the storytelling of the death of one of Canada’s “Group of Seven” painters.
