Beyond Ableism – Panel with Naomi McAdam

1 August 2018
6:30 pm
8:30 pm

As part of Visionary Fictions, ONCA’s summer programme of events that support artists and audiences to create visions for just and habitable worlds, join local artist-activist Naomi McAdam and a panel to discuss ableism and visions of a world without it.

Some of the questions we will ask are: What is ableism? What would a world without ableism look like? Expect a lively conversation and a little bit of participation!


The event will be BSL interpreted. The gallery is wheelchair accessible. We do not have a wheelchair accessible toilet on site, but have arranged use of the accessible toilet at The Yellow Book Cafe, which is 140ft from ONCA.

Host Naomi McAdam is an artist and co-organiser of Brighton Disability Pride, and chair Harriet Cavanagh is community engagement officer at Brighton Scope.


  • Nicki Heywood: Nicki is a peer trainer at Brighton & Hove Recovery College
  • Sean Martindill
  • Fen Rose: Fen is a panelist and workshop facilitator. She is an artist and musician living with chronic illness. She’s interested in amplifying the creative and social gifts of fellow queer and disabled people.

This event is now fully booked. Please email if you didn’t manage to get a ticket but would like to come.

The event is free but donations are warmly welcomed.

Supported by Scope’s Local People Programme in Brighton, funded by People’s Health Trust using money raised by HealthWish through The Health Lottery.
