Here’s How Much The Flint Water Crisis Is Costing The Average Resident  | GOOD Money

After over 1,000 days of contaminated tap water—with at least another 1,000 predicted—it is easy to see how a citizen becomes a scientist.

I Can Only Make It Up Once. Exhibition

“Modern Fuel presents, in its State of Flux Gallery, a new installation of work and a performance by Kingston artist Lisa Figge titled I Can Only Make It Up Once. Exploring disability as a location of knowledge, Figge makes artworks such as experimental video and puppets to renegotiate the terms of living in a body that is no longer able-bodied. She is making artwork about how it feels to be in a differently mobile body. Drawing together a broad range of texts from Cultural Studies, Philosophy, Disability Studies, Performance Studies, Art and Puppetry, presents a problem that everyone shares. Compulsory ablebodiness keeps us isolated and at a distance from each other in strange and troubling ways.”

one step too many

“Accessible housing in Kingston is in short supply. The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act outlines regulations for ensuring that public spaces are accessible; however, it does not require landlords or rental agencies to provide accessible accommodations. When Lisa was searching for an apartment in Kingston for the first time last summer, her first barrier was being able to find an apartment that simply claimed to be accessible. However, although some apartment listings have a check box indicating whether or not an apartment is “accessible,” accessibility is a term that is poorly defined. For those who have not been affected by physical accessibility issues, certain aspects of a building’s infrastructure simply do not register as barriers. After confirming with landlords that there were no stairs, Lisa would often arrive to learn that there were steps, and as Lisa explained, “Even one step is enough to keep you out.” Here is a link to a video clip that Lisa recorded as part of her art practice which illustrates an issue of accessibility that is a regular part of her life.””
