Performance art as an occupation for disabled artists was examined through a qualitative phenomenological design based in narrative inquiry. The research yielded three themes: (1) Belonging to a community of disability activists promotes feelings of empowerment for disabled performance artists. (2) The invisible is made visible through their craft; performance art is a means to express the inside out. (3) Space and place impact performance art. Two important subthemes will also be highlighted.
