Cultural Work!

Speakers

Day Al-Mohamed is a disability policy advisor, a science fiction and
fantasy author, and a documentary filmmaker. When not doing that, she likes
to fence, spend time with her wife, and annoy her cat, Doom.

Deanna Parvin Yadollahi hopes to enact institutional change and radical
reimagination that will lead to more supportive and just realities.
Deanna’s work includes community-building, resource-creating, presenting,
writing, and Deanna’s creative access consulting practice. Deanna is
pursuing a Masters degree in Disability Studies at CUNY school of
professional studies.

Moderator: Lydia X. Z. Brown, AWN Director of Policy, Advocacy, &
External Affairs

light, a director's clapboard, video camera, and film reel. There are
photos of two people. The first person is Deanna. Deanna is against a white
wall and is smiling. Deanna has light brown skin and short, partially
shaved, curly hair with side bangs. Deanna is wearing a light pink top and
multiple ear piercings, and has dimples. The second person is Day, an Arab
woman with wavy dark hair, and sunglasses pushed up on her head. The text
says, On Stage & On Page: Disability Justice in Film, Theatre, & Cultural
Work, 3 June 2021 at 5pm Eastern / 2pm Pacific. The corner shows the AWN
logo - a large "a" with a dragonfly on it, and the words awnnetwork.org.]
