Latitude Thinks Outside, Inside and Alongside the Box


Lives shaped by boxes…
by Latitude Artist Community with Caitlin Serey

a box-folding ritual performance/meditation which examines the tedium associated with this very typical form of work/employment common to those of us considered by some to have disabilities…
.....
Thursday, October 20th
at Latitude Artist Community
167 Saunier Stree,
Lexington, KY
.....
9:00am-3:00pm Meditation--the public is invited to attend/observe this performance at any time during this period. This performance is free and open to everyone. 

12:30pm-1:00pm Presentations--various presenters/readers will share information regarding concerns, observations and alternatives to this veiled form of work/employment 
.....
It is our belief that most forms of employment held by those of us considered by some to have disabilities, even (and often particularly) those jobs held in high regard by employment specialists are quite often isolating and unfulfilling. While our performance "Lives shaped by boxes..." seemingly references employment practices most common to "Sheltered Workshops" our intention is not to single out workshop environments but to use this opportunity to examine all forms of employment common to those of us considered (particularly) to have intellectual disabilities.
