Article 19 – UNCRPD
A new multimedia performance exploring the United Nations Convention on Rights for Persons living with Disability (UNCRPD). Under construction by artist Janet Charlesworth.
Why, in the 21st century, am I met with surprise when I tell mainly members of the medical profession that I live on my own? Why do I then feel the need to justify it by saying, as if to put their mind at rest, that I have ‘carers’ coming in. Is it because they only see my disability, as the medical model does?Janet Charlesworth
Artist and member, Janet Charlesworth explores historical attitudes/treatment of people living with disability labels to create this new multimedia, live part performance. The work exposes the shocking similarities between Victorian prejudice and modern day attitudes from government and media.
Janet performed an adapted version of her #CABOW piece – In My Own Time as part of Emergency Festival in September 2019. The work experimented with the inclusion of elements of Article 19 and has since been completely re-imagined to include new writing, multimedia elements and movement exploration from with the Proud and Loud Arts members company.
