Landscapes of the Body is an accessible exhibition designed to be enjoyed by visually impaired and fully sighted viewers alike, in a multi-sensorial experience. Exhibitions are presented via traditional framed prints of the images, with accompanying audio descriptions for each image created by the artist. Audio descriptions are accessed with any smartphone by scanning a QR code. Tactile versions of selected images also accompany each showing, rounding out the sensorial enjoyment of this unique view of the human form.

Dateability

Dateability is the only dating app designed for the disabled and chronically ill communities. People with disabilities and chronic illness often encounter ableism on other dating apps. They understand the unique circumstances that present when dating with a disability, which is why they created a safe and accepting space to create meaningful connections for people with physical, intellectual, and psychiatric disabilities. They invite LGBTQ+ people as they are dedicated to creating an inclusive dating app.

Dateability is available to use on iOS, Android, and web application for North America.
