PANEL: Representation or Tokenism?

  • The Moon 37 Mosque Street Singapore, 059515 Singapore (map)

What is the difference between representation and tokenism? How can we do better, both in stories and in our everyday lives, to create a more inclusive community? This dialogue brings forth the voices and lived experience of female advocates from the disabled community.

As part of International Women's Day, join us for a conversation with Cassandra Chiu (author of A Place for Us, guide dog team with Esme the Global Guide Dog), Dr. Dawn-joy Leong (autistic artist-researcher) and Laika Jumabhoy (AWARE Singapore)—as they talk about the tendency for tokenism, and how we can do better at truly representing and including people with disabilities.

Whether you're a reader or writer, we invite you to join us for this year's Meeting in the Middle, and to make an active effort to create space (literal or metaphorical) for disabilities in your stories.
