BCCA recipients do not buy into the idea that there is one body ‘norm.’ Instead recipients are actively striving to challenge the status quo and to reimagine diverse bodies limitlessly.

 

The BCCAs are heavily influenced by critical media, race, disability, fat studies, queer and feminist theories.  We invite you to Google these as they are great markers of our BCCA philosophies.
