Barbie Parker Greenwater's reflections on the usefulness, frustrations and pitfalls of media attention (ASL only)

Barbie and LotuSIGN have been featured in many media outlets over the years, championing increased access and expressing  the joy in what LotuSIGN does.  Barbie's famous characterizations of live music interpreting - "This isn't your Grandma's ADA. . .  Live music shouldn't look like we're interpreting a city council meeting." - remain key vantage points in ongoing discussions of accessibility, interpreter roles, Deaf agency, terminology and just what it means to see music in all its power, pathos and excitement.
