Devon Healey

Theatre Artist


Devon Healey is an Assistant Professor of Disability Studies at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, University of Toronto. Her work is grounded in her experience as a blind woman and is guided by a desire to show how blindness and disability can be understood as offering an alternate form of perception and is thus, a valuable and creative way of experiencing and knowing the world. She is the author of Dramatizing Blindness: Disability Studies as Critical Creative Narrative (Palgrave Macmillan, 2021) and has contributed to numerous academic publications. Devon is also an award-winning actor and with the support of Outside the March is developing a new play, Rainbow on Mars, a sensory reclamation of blindness premiering summer 2025.
