About the event

Divyanshu Ganatra is joining us to talk about disability. Not inability. 

Through his own lived experience as well as his work, he has a deep understanding in visible and invisible disabilities as well as the struggles and joys that constitute living with them. It's important to recognize the struggles but not forget the possibilities. We're going to talk about his experience with being visually impaired and then also look at the narrative around disability. Let's Talk | The series: There is a gap between what someone experiences and what we presume. It is key that we bring people with lived-experience to understand better multifactorial nature of the decision as well as the experience in order to support and understand them. The goal is not to judge, glorify, victimize, generalize or weaponize but to understand. After the event, there will be a facilitated sharing circle for all participants. This is because the topic and event may be triggering. If you need space to be held for you - to talk, to question, to discuss - feel free to stay back. This will happen after 8pm at the same location. PLEASE NOTE: 1. Attending this event requires you to make an informed decision about your mental state of mind at this point in your life. Certain parts can be sensitive or triggering. 2. Attending this event means you acknowledge the sensitivity of the subject and promise to respect the privacy and vulnerability of the other attendees as well as the speakers. The speakers, especially the ones with lived experience, have agreed to share one aspect of their lives and identity with us on this one day.
