Description

THE EVENT

This 2018 TEDx YorkuSalon event explores themes surrounding relationships, sexuality and intimacy in relation to people with disabilities (PWD). Relationships, sexuality, body image and intimacy are often complex and difficult to navigate. This complexity is amplified in relation to PWD (Kattari et al., 2017), especially due to the lack of education and awareness on the topic. As well, attitudinal barriers, inaccessibility and body image all play a key role in the reproduction of harmful ideas about PWD. If education is essential for an inclusive sexual education, critical thinking and taking massive action must occur in order to engage individually, locally and globally. Post-secondary educational systems need to engage in more research to address practices and ideologies that do not allow PWD to access inclusive education about diverse relationships. Our TEDx Yorku Salon event begins to address this gap.

ABOUT THE TEDx SALON FORMAT

The aim of this 2018 TEDX Salon is to address attitudinal barriers, create familiarity, and build a community network. TEDxSalon’s provide intimate spaces where people of all abilities and disciplines can learn, grow, share and ask questions to move thinking into action. Any TEDxSalon talk is broadcasted online for the world to see. It is a conversation that can continue past the original discussion date. TEDxSalon’s and other TEDx events are broadcasted on YouTube, a social media platform that is accessible by any person with internet access. This is particularly of interest to those who may not be able to attend a university to explore these topics, or for those who wish to give more insight and join in the conversation by making a responsive video, commenting in the comment section or sharing it with their friends, colleagues or family members to raise awareness through other social media outlets (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, Tumbler, etc.). This discussion includes the voices of the students themselves alongside experts in the field. TEDxSalon’s are meant to generate conversations in smaller-sized formats.
