Kay Slater is a multidisciplinary artist, accessibility consultant and arts worker. Their artistic practice explores value as it relates to process and expectations. Kay’s work is rooted in anti-oppression practices, and they employ open source and community-engaged approaches to support ongoing knowledge transfer with makers and creators at all stages of their careers. Kay is dedicated to expanding art making opportunities where verbal and non-verbal communication is used and where no one is ever turned away for lack of skill or understanding. They subscribe to the philosophy of the New Sincerity which strives to “be more awesome”. Kay is queer and hard of hearing. They are a settler working as an uninvited guest on the stolen lands of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh peoples.
