Armenia: Artists & Wheelchairs

Myrthe writes about an article by English artist Mick Oxley's recent trip to Armenia. While there, he worked with a local artist, Arsen Asatryan, who, like him, uses a wheelchair to get around. In her comments on the article, Myrthe discusses attitudes towards disabilities and accesibility issues that unfortunately lead to many disabled people staying out of public.
