Learn More Series: Disability in the Arts with Kristina Wong

For this BU Diversity & Inclusion (BU D&I) Learn More Series keynote speaker event, performance artist and comedian Kristina Wong uses humor to make smart social statements about the sometimes subtle, sometimes obvious ways that race, mental health, and gender play out in America today. She performed an abridged piece from her show “Wong Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.”

Following her performance, Wong is joined by Dean David J. Chard, Wheelock College of Education & Human Development, for a discussion on mental health, artistry, and intersectionality. The event will conclude with audience Q&A moderated by Dean Chard.

This event originally took place on Wednesday, November 10, 2021.

This event is part of BU Diversity & Inclusion’s (BU D&I) Learn More Series, which explores a single topic of social importance through events, discussions, and programs throughout the year— this year, BU D&I is exploring disability and the impact of ableism.
