Sick of being Patient, are a series of solo and collaborative projects by artist and disability activist Charlie Fitz. The projects aim to resist and challenge the expectation that the 'sick' person be patient, passive and submissive to medical institutions and a society that is systematically failing the chronically ill and disabled.
Accessibility is a priority: I am working on improving the accessibility of this website & adding Alt text to all images. I am new to website building, any feedback on how to make this website more accessible is apreciated. Email:
I am archiving works in 'online collections' to resist my impulse to destroy my work, to resist my constant sense of being an 'imposter', to resist the need to be validated by a traditional art school training or the art market.
Twitter feed, because social media is vital to online activists. Online activism is a vital act of resistance for chronically ill people and/or disabled people. Diverse mediums of activism are needed and valid for accessibility.
