The Mixer – disabled illustrators meet-up w/ Ananya Rao-Middleton

September 22 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Welcome to the third AOI meet-up for disabled illustrators, in the widest possible definition. Book below or via our Eventbrite.

The Mixer is the disabled illustrators AOI meet-up. Our meet-up is open to all disabled illustrators, in the widest possible definition.

For our third meet-up we will have a special guest – Ananya Rao-Middleton – a feminist illustrator & chronic illness & disability activist. She will walk us through her amazing work and tell us her personal story of what it takes to be a successful professional illustrator with a disability. It will be a great opportunity to get to know her, where she finds inspiration and how she overcomes the daily challenges.

The Mixer is about everyone involved to feel welcome to take part in building a community of trust. This is a place for disabled artists and illustrators to feel safe to speak up about any hardships and issues we have been challenged with and the solutions we came up with.

We want to celebrate our proud moments, share our wins and most importantly – the love of making art.

The Mixer meet-up is a safe bubble to make new friends, get inspired and be supported. It is your space to blow some air, seek advice or simply share your art, tips and tricks to making it within the creative industry.

All illustrators are welcome no matter where they stand in their professional career and whether they are an AOI member or not.


The AOI would like to make events accessible to all, where possible. Please let us know your access requirements at least one week in advance by emailing info@theaoi.com
