Disability Community Tech Center

The Mellon Foundation is funding a project on Just Dis Tech Futures to “support the creation of a Disability Community Technology Center that provides guidance for developing disabled-led technology and disability-forward technological futures through humanities-based scholarship and arts outreach.” This project runs Jan 2023-Dec 2025, and will mean many exciting things for the disability community surrounding Virginia Tech and the New River Valley region of Virginia, as well as in and around Charlotte with our partner university UNC-Charlotte.

We will also have many more details forthcoming in announcement of disability justice-centered artist residencies, performances, workshops, paid tech consulting opportunities, and community events and activities. We are grateful for this funding – and the powerful impact it will have.
