Tune in on Saturday 3 December for 12 hours of programming on the International Day of People with Disability. This year we’re talking about REST as a necessity for our survival, the ways disabled people are habitually denied both rest and income, reflections on disabled rest and joy, disabled Indigenous anticapitalist futures, and so much more. Universal access to rest, to wellness, to life, is Disability Justice. Check out the full program grid here.

"for every beat a rest
for every shadow cast a light
for every action a reaction
rest is not wasted time
it is survival”
