The AIM Lab is co-created by and for disabled people and communities within Concordia and beyond. It is a collective of academic and community-based researchers, students, artists, teachers, activists, and makers and tinkerers.
"The crew" is the people behind the scenes, building the lab, doing its organizational work, running the business, curating its events and activities, creating and carrying out its projects, managing space and equipment.
In line with our approach to access as research-creation , we, as crew members, have decided to voice our own image descriptions so that you can get to access both our images and our voices. We encourage our members to do the same as they fill in their membership form, and voice their own image descriptions.
"Members" benefit from participating in the activities, events and projects of the Lab and actively contribute to the Lab. All members will be registered in the email list of the Lab, and be able to attend its activities and events. Members can request having a "Paper Jam" session for their work, propose projects and collaborations to the AIM crew (for these inquires please contact arseli [dot] dokumaci [at] concordia [dot] ca). Once the physical space of the lab is built, members will also be able to access the space and its equipment. A new membership form will be put in place at that time.
