Issue 3, 2021.
We would like to begin by acknowledging, that this zine is being organized on the territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnaabeg, Haudenosaunee, Lenni-lenape and the Wendat Nations. This land, which currently holds the colonial name of Ontario, is home to many Indigenous peoples from across Turtle Island. We also recognize and acknowledge we are in the territory subject to the Dish With One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant, an agreement between the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, the Anishinaabeg and allied nations to peaceably share and care for the land and waters of the Great Lakes region (This statement was supported and written by Raven Davis, and adapted from Bricks & Glitter). CRIP COLLAB was born from a need to engage with more art by disabled, racialized, queer, Two-Spirit, trans, non-binary and gender non-forming folks. For Issue 3, we received 35 applications, and had to make the difficult decision to select 10 featured artists. 8 of the artists are Black, and all 10 artists belong to both the 2SLGBTQIA+ community and the Deaf and Disabled community. CRIP COLLAB Issue 3 was made possible by funding from Luminato! Big thank you to Luminato for the support and resources. This zine was curated by Pree and Courage. Courage is Tkaronto-Guyanese Black Deaf Queer, Former Deafolympican, actress and activist. You can find me on Instagram as @couragebacchus and FB@ courage bacchus And Pree is a multiply disabled, chronically ill, cancer survivor who belongs to the Panjabi diaspora. You can find me on Instagram as @stickymangos and @preezilla. With love and gratitude, Pree Rehal (they/them) and Courage Bacchus (she/her).

Swell told to shrink in magnificence down down down proud voices - silenced languages lost like sparrows we flit in fear in retort I swell self largess eat from abundance climb onto my shoulders build nests in my hair declare freedom on the crown of my head
