A Halifax artist who is queer and disabled is working to make markets and pop-up stores more inclusive and accessible for people like her. Kayti Baur is the founder of Different Folks, a new organization that aims to put on artisan markets that are accessible to vendors and customers who are disabled, and are also welcoming to the LGBTQ community. “I think a lot of underrepresented groups have this culture to them, like deaf culture and queer culture, that really could be more exposed and brought to the forefront,” Baur told CBC Radio’s Mainstreet Nova Scotia. “By just bringing those vendors together and letting them showcase their art and letting people come into a welcoming environment.” Baur is an artist herself, having studied textile arts at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design after high school.
