Dear creatives with disabilities, including musicians. So-called exposure by way of contest, competition and, (in a lot of cases), volunteer work is bullshit. Don’t run after it. Your time and talents are just as valuable as those of your abled counterparts, and any person or organization trying to trick you with promises of exposure or large impact in exchange for free work is a vulture worthy of your contempt. Your time and talents do not become less valuable just because you may be unemployed now or because you’ve been unemployed for a long time. Dear people and organizations: People with disabilities are not a source of free labor.
