Talking Mimes


A touching, funny, infuriating, harrowing and ultimately hopeful VR experience drawn from true stories of people with profound physical disabilities. Talking Mimes is an emotional education piece with companion workshops designed to: Start practical conversations around safety and respect; actively reject the soft bigotry of low expectations; peel back the layers of alienation and teach us how to be less accidentally condescending arseholes, and more on purpose good humans.

The experience and companion workshops have been deployed in university, commercial, and private contexts with results ranging from practical enlightenment of students and professionals, to cry-your-face-off beautiful feedback from people with disabilities and their families.

I cannot overstate how much gratitude and love I have for my fellow TeeDubbers.
