Alice Wong: Assembly for the Future
Welcome to Assembly for the Future, with our host Alex K and First Speaker Alice Wong. Disabled oracles have existed throughout time. What will they say in 2029, when some disabilities have disappeared due to technology and cures? Listen to the tale from Alice Wong, the Last Disabled Oracle, and the wisdom she shares from her ancestors. This Assembly took place on 6 August 2020 as part of BLEED Festival, commissioned, by the City of Melbourne through Arts House as part of BLEED 2020. Assembly for the Future is the first project of The Things We Did Next, co-created by Alex Kelly & David Pledger and produced by Not Yet It’s Difficult & Something Somewhere INC.
