Origins: “The Future Is Disabled”

Many years ago I was in a meeting brainstorming names for a curriculum for youth with disabilities about employment featuring  role models with disabilities from various career fields. I suggested the title “Open Futures” as a reference and a direct rebuttal to philosopher Peter Singer who asserted that disabled infants should die because, “it has no sense of the future.” The documentary FIXED: The Science/Fiction of Human Enhancement also influenced my thinking about the evolution of bodies, technology and ideas of disability.

Fast forward to November 2015. The initial inspiration for slogan “The Future Is Disabled” came from a photo by Liza Cowan of Alix Dobkin wearing a t-shirt that read, “the future is female.” The slogan and original shirt were from Labyris Books in New York City. Inspiration for the buttons came from Liza Cowan and the apparel by Otherwild.com in Los Angeles.

After seeing those images, “The Future Is Disabled” was born.
