In an era of ever-growing pharmaceutical enhancement, what counts as intellectually disabled, and why would that matter? How does the way we define disability (and normalcy) impact the just distribution of resources in society — and the way society treats those who happen to fall outside the norm? How are foundational concepts in ethics like dignity or autonomy complicated by reflection on the many ways we are dependent on others in the course of any “normal” human lifespan?
Each year, the Kennedy Institute of Ethics convenes a wide-ranging and personal conversation among expert panelists, preceded and informed by student work on the same topic. We can’t wait to share this year’s conversation, complicating the very notion of “disability.” Join us this February, in-person at Georgetown University, or digitally via live-stream, as our team goes deep on this thought-provoking and deeply important issue.

Did you know? This year’s topic celebrates one of the issues at the heart of the KIE story: disability.
The Institute was founded in 1971 with support from the Rose and Joseph Kennedy Foundation, inspired in large part by the Foundation’s ongoing commitment to advancing the rights of the disabled. This year’s topic celebrates that founding vision of a world where the voices of the powerless are made powerful through thoughtful reflection and theory-driven advocacy, and it dives deep into some of the most complicated and interesting questions in disability ethics today.

About The Consortium
Organized in 2007, The Consortium provides means by which professionals and key stakeholders involved in arts education for students with disabilities in New York can share perspectives, determine needs, develop ways to meet them, deepen practice and understanding. Our purpose is to bring together constituencies that historically have not had sufficient opportunity to interact with one another, to engage them in meaningful conversation and exploration in order to ascertain barriers to and opportunities for providing quality arts education to special education students. That is, to build capacity, understanding and value, and do so as a whole – School/Arts/Home – community.

Course Overview Course Description The Pulse of Art: Connections Between the History of Art and the History of Medicine is a unique, full-semester course that harnesses the power of significant works of art to increase the observation skills and empathic responses of medical students, physicians, and health-care providers. By organizing the course into thematic topics ranging from plague and ebola to portraiture and prosopagnosia, and recognizing historic contexts for the art and science discussed, students also gain an awareness and understanding of the trajectory of medical understanding and discovery.

Newsletter Summer 2021
This summer, we launched a citywide public art installation with NYC Department of Education’s District 75 students inspired by POSITIVE EXPOSURE’s East Harlem Wall of Love, a four-story mural created in collaboration with artist Marco Santini. The project, entitled “Fill NYC with Love” is composed of over 500 pieces of District 75 student artwork, addressing the theme, “Love, Unity and Inclusion,” complimenting the amazing Wall of Love. The public installations were on East 4TH Street between 1ST and 2ND outside PS751M (Manhattan School of Career Development) and East 120TH Street between Madison and Park at PS79M (Horan School). They were up through August and enjoyed by thousands.
