Art with Attitude 1999

In July of 1999, professors Catherine Frazee and Judith Sandys hosted dancers Rachel Gorman and Mark Brose in the DST 501 classroom, marking our first foray into the world of disability arts and culture at Ryerson.    In a no-frills classroom with no staging or lights, working with simple props and a cassette player, Rachel and Mark performed "Slipping Ground".  

Henceforth, disability arts and culture was on the curriculum at Ryerson!

 In the olden “pre-digital” era, we lacked the foresight to take photos of that actual performance.  However, Rachel and Mark have kindly provided archival photos from the same time period as a contribution to our collective memory.
