Crip Rave™ is a Toronto-based collective, event platform, and consulting hub showcasing and prioritizing Crip, Disabled, Deaf, Mad and Sick body-minds within safer and more accessible rave spaces.
What is Crip Rave?
Crip Rave™ Collective was created by Renee Dumaresque and Stefana Fratila, two Mad and Crip organizers who are passionate about electronic music and envision a world where rave sites are accessible to everyone. Together, we have hosted both in-person and virtual raves and workshops, participated on panels at Nowadays (New York) and MUTEK (Montréal), and consulted with festivals and event promoters to enhance the accessibility of their offerings. The ‘collective’ in our name refers to the artists, collaborators, teachers, ASL interpreters, graphic designers, access support workers, and lineages of Disability Justice and Crip community wisdom that make our events possible.
