Landon Krentz was chosen to be one of the 12 core arts leaders from the Deaf, Mad and disability arts mileu and will be flying to Ottawa to do a workshop design program with the National Arts Centre / Centre national des Arts. The program looks at the inclusion of Deaf, Mad and disability arts leaders and practitioners together from across Canada to collaborate and explore the creation of works!
Landon is particularly excited about this opportunity and he wants to understand some of the best artistic practices for d/Deaf artists. If there are any d/Deaf artists in Vancouver, please send him a message. He’d love to hear from you and get some feedback.
