Advocacy & Accessibility

Since his arrival in NYC, Núñez has supported and worked for different social causes, groups, and organizations for the rights of undocumented, disabled, indigenous, and LGBT+ people. He has been Manager of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Accessibility for organizations like Dance/NYC and Movement Research. Núñez was a Core Member of the Artists of Color Council (AoCC) at Movement Research and Founder of the Accessibility Advisory Team (AAT), a group of disabled artists who advise Movement Research on accessibility and inclusion practices through its various departments and platforms. Núñez decided to found the AAT, as a space to encourage leadership by disabled artists who historically have not had a seat at the table. Núñez was part of the prestigious Immigrant Artist Mentoring program (2018 Cohort) and The Incubator for Executive Leaders of Color (2023 Cohort) both sponsored by the New York Foundation for the Arts, NYFA. As part of his Princeton University Arts Fellowship, Núñez will facilitate the course Introduction to Radical Access: Disability Justice in the Arts, which centers accessibility as a creative tool and care practice.
