Virtual Reality Access

Debaser and Crip Rave are excited to partner with BREAK, a VRCHAT experimental music collective, to present the Crip Rave program in virtual reality! 

A two-way portal to the event will be offered so that VR attendees will be able to communicate with IRL attendees in real-time via webcam, text or emojis, and vice versa! ♥️

If you wish to attend the event in VR, you only need access to a PC, Steam and VRCHAT (free to play) and can attend in desktop mode or in VR if you have a PC enabled VR headset. For more information on how to join the BREAK discord here, a link to the world will be available on December 9th, 2023.

About Crip Rave

Revolution is written into the origins of electronic music, where the genres, sounds, and spaces of rave culture have been crafted through Queer, Trans*, Black, Indigenous and People of Colour resistance. Informed by this legacy, Crip Rave™ centres Crip, Disabled, Deaf, Mad and Sick communities within expressive and innovative electronic music spaces. Structural barriers, ableism, industry standards, and cultural norms have largely resulted in inaccessible rave spaces and the exclusion of Crip bodyminds. Setting up an electronic music event so that all people can enter a venue is crucial, but accessibility requires us to go further— to centre disability in every aspect of planning so that all people can feel safe, comfortable, have their access needs met and their talents reflected in rave culture.

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.
