For museums, organizations, and public venues. In this workshop we'll discuss disability history and trends, accessibility 101 (including customer service), specific adaptations you can make for your programs, and how to approach the authentic inclusion of artists with disabilities in your spaces.

 

Did you know 1 in 5 Americans has a disability? That number grows with the baby boomer population and other market subsets. Museums and cultural institutions around the world stepping up their game to be more accessibility for people with disability. We will want to achieve our missions and welcome more people, but we can't truly be inclusive until we're accessible. You will find that as you make considerations for disability, you are more welcoming to the whole community.

 

The goal of these workshops is to demystify access into something that is manageable, not necessarily expensive, and ways to make it a priority at your organization (big or small).  

 

The workshop will be led by Erin Hoppe, executive director at VSA Ohio, a statewide organization making the arts more accessible, and include guest speakers from the disability community.  

 

Registration cost - all locations: $15 OMA members or code VSAOHIO; $25 non-members.
