Safe and Scared: A Case-Study of Dis/ability Arts Organizations and Systemic Innovation

Kai Roland Green

Studenteropgave: Speciale


This essay explored the normative and epistemic effects of dis/ability arts organizations in the UK and Sweden. With the development of a discourse for the Arts and Health movement and Art Entrepreneurship, a gap emerges for socially-entrepreneurial ventures whose innovation value is outside the well-engrained parameters of ‘work integration’ for persons with dis/abilities. Using theories of kynicism and sensemaking – from aesthetic and organisational studies – an analysis is framed of how these Arts innovations – largely lead by non-dis/abled entrepreneurs – navigate and disrupt institutional understandings of dis/ability.
