Kalyn Heffernan

Fellowship Facilitator

Kalyn Rose Heffernan is the wheelchair using, rap heavy, freedom fighting producer, educator, foul mouthed rebel rouser. Raised by the DIY (Do It Yourself) spirit of experimental independence, Kalyn fronts the internationally acclaimed band Wheelchair Sports Camp. The band has since stretched into theatre, performance art, television, politics, prison tours, permanent installations, and more to come. Kalyn led Denver's first disabled, queer, artist campaign for the mayor seat 2019. The tiny happy mayor has been advocating for herself and other marginalized communities through music, direct action, education and art since ever.  Commonly known for fighting for access, human rights, and calling out those in power who protect capital interests over the future - Kalyn makes herself heard with a very loud and distinct high pitched sense of humor.
