Tangled Art Gallery in Toronto, ON just launched their opening season, and starts off with the new show by Persimmon Blackbridge.
The show runs from May 4 through July 6, 2016.
More Info: Constructed Identities, a major show of new work by Canadian artist Persimmon Blackbridge, will be the first exhibit in TAG. Audiences can expect to engage with art that reshapes understandings of disability, encounter disability artists who invigorate the art world, and interact with inclusive technologies that reimagine how we experience art.

Arts & Disability Network Manitoba, and Disability Matters: Vote 2016 are excited to announce this creative contest with six cash prizes, two categories, and a brain-tickler of a prompt for Manitoba residents.

Signs can be picked up at a number of locations around Winnipeg, and entries must fall into one of two categories:
Contest is opened today (May 9, 2016) and closes midnight May 31, 2016.
We can't wait to see what you come up with. Good luck to everyone!
