personal disability stuff, exclusion 

this is something i think about a lot. i've gradually, quietly drifted out of the "art industry", and it's easy to think about it in terms of "oh i just can't keep up with all this stuff" etc but the reason i can't keep up with all that stuff is because i'm disabled! the industry, like so many others, is unthinkingly set up to be hostile to disability.

alcohol, personal disability stuff, exclusion 

even just stuff like the assumption that the entire professional aspect of the art industry is gonna centre around later-evening to late-night social events where alcohol is always gonna be consumed. it's fucked up that that is the entire load-bearing weight of professional participation in this industry. that alone locks out a whole load of people.

personal disability stuff, exclusion 

honestly even before i was officially disabled i found this shit hard to keep up with. it's an industry that likes one neurotype only. there's ableism from even your anti-establishment faves (yes, especially the coolest ones) that's a whole topic of discussion in disabled circles that of course is never even heard of by even the "struggling artist" class.

anyway, i very much want to produce something for this, disability permitting
