Bojana Coklyat

MA Candidate

Bojana found herself becoming an advocate for Disability justice when she began losing her vision. Informed by her experiences with lack of access to the arts and education, she started several programs to fill this void: she formed her own position where she implemented an accessible art program at St. Joseph’s School for the Blind and she instituted proper ADA accommodations throughout art venues in Jersey City. After graduating from New Jersey City University with a BA in Art Therapy, Bojana began pursuing access in the arts more fervently. At Gallatin, she is focusing on the intersection of Disability Studies and Art Administration. This year she will intern at the Whitney Museum of Art in their Access and Community Program as well as take classes in Sociology, Art Administration, Museum Studies, and Sign Language Interpretation. Research for her thesis will examine the environments that cultural institutions cultivate for staff living with disabilities.
