The Disability Visibility Project is an online community dedicated to creating, sharing, and amplifying disability media and culture.
The DVP is also a community partnership with StoryCorps, a national oral history organization. Our aim is to create disabled media that is intersectional, multi-modal, and accessible.
What does the DVP do?
Believes that disabled narratives matter and that they belong to us
Creates disabled media from collected oral histories in the form of tweets, podcast episodes, radio stories, audio clips, images, blog posts, etc.
Publishes original essays, reports, and blog posts about ableism, intersectionality, culture, media, and politics from the perspective of disabled people
Provides online spaces for people to share and connect
Hosts and organizes Twitter chats about disability culture and issues
Moderates a Facebook group, fostering conversation and sharing the latest news of interest to the disability community
Champions disability culture and history
Organizes and facilitates events, gives presentations, participates on panels
Supports and amplifies the work of other disabled people and organizations in the community using social media
Consults with organizations and companies
NOTE: The Disability Visibility Project does not represent or speak for StoryCorps in any way. The DVP did not create the #CripTheVote campaign but is a co-partner in that movement. Also: the usage of the word ‘Visibility’ in the project name is metaphorical. It is not meant to privilege one sensory experience over others.
