Using tech so disabled people can feel the power of the arts.
Clary Saddler uses assistive technology to let disabled people write songs, perform in theatre and express themselves through visual art.
“The arts change lives,” Clary Saddler says. “But disabled people miss out.” The 39-year-old is artistic director of Forget-Me-Not Productions, a company combining music, theatre and visual arts with the latest in assistive technology. Working alongside her wife and company co-director Mel, an assistive tech specialist, Saddler turned a small post-university venture into a one-of-a-kind initiative that has given hundreds of disadvantaged people the chance to get creative.
