This is a must-watch: “Korean artists break barriers one brushstroke at a time”, a mini-documentary by UN Web. The 15-minute documentary follows Hansol Kim and Shinhey Park, two artists with developmental disabilities. Follow them as they prepare to showcase their work alongside 43 other artists at the Seoul Art Centre. Heartwarming and endearing, the documentary’s pairing of candid interviews with behind-the-scenes moments offers an unfiltered snapshot of the hard work and dedication of these artists and their supporters.

Looking for a new book to read? Check out the Year of the Tiger, the memoir of Alice Wong, the founder of the Disability Visibility Project.
