mixed feelings is a radio show exploring accessibility in the arts from the experience and practices of disabled artists worldwide. In this episode, saverio meets Leroy Moore, the founder of Krip-Hop Nation and one of the co-founders of Sins Invalid. Leroy shares his experience as artist and activist, expanding on Disability Justice and his latest music release and publications.

With a commitment to practices that explore sounds in all forms, mixed feelings show is co-curated by Saverio Cantoni, and Dana Cermane, in spoken language (mainly English) and signing language (mainly International Sign Language). Screenreader-accessible transcripts accompany each episode. Accessibility is an empowering creative territory. How would the radio be if it were accessible to Deaf folks? Are we willing to give space to the Deaf community in the conventionally hearing-only territory? mixed feelings merge conversation and sound art, music, and experimental practices transforming our present. This fluid format evolves over time because accessibility is still a very speculative practice, and the folks involved in this project will shape it merging individual experiences and communal thinking.
