The Accessibility Advisory Team (AAT) is a cohort of disabled artists advising Movement Research on Equity, Accessibility, and Inclusion across its departments and platforms.

The Members meet once every six weeks to share their invaluable experience on justice, sustainability, resilience, artistry, and activism, centering on the needs of the disabled communities from the lens of Disability Justice.

The AAT recognizes intersectionality and parallel systems of oppression experienced by Disabled, Chronically Ill, Immunocompromised, d/Deaf, Queer, Trans, Immigrant, Black, Indigenous, People of Color and factors such as socioeconomic status, spirituality, language, literacy, and education -among others- on an institutional, social and political level. Therefore, the AAT aims to build Cross-Disability solidarity to reflect critically on the past, present, and future of Disability in the Arts.

Here goes the organizational context. Why MR decided or felt compelled to request this space and services.
