BOW is a dynamic, international, 11-day celebration that explores the contributions of artists with disabilities, the contemporary contexts of disabled lives, and works that illuminate disability experiences.

Bodies of Work first launched in 2006 as a unique cross-disciplinary event, and the festival continues to challenge and provoke with transformative work in theater, dance, literature, poetry, film, visual art, and sound performance. A variety of panel discussions held throughout the festival add fresh perspectives and thoughtful viewpoints.
