Rethinking art and disability

The impression that was given by these individuals was that despite their HIV diagnosis, they were getting on with their lives.

And this was the first point that came up in the discussion when Gadsden informed us that Nondumiso wasn’t even aware that she had a disability until she had been informed by the artist.
