More Than A Ramp: Building Audiences Through Inclusive Practices
Wednesday, May 3, 2017 | 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM | Deane Hall, Calderwood Pavilion | Cost: Free
Regular human ability falls along a spectrum and crosses over gender, race, class, and age. The ADA laws establish “designed environments” as a civil rights issue; but how can our cultural organizations go beyond architectural compliance and look to “effective communication” as the baseline for policy development?
Join ArtsBoston, the Massachusetts Cultural Council, and a panel of local experts in this important discussion about engaging audiences with disabilities. Learn about the resources you can tap into to include patrons you are overlooking. Move beyond what “has to be done” to what “should be done” to increase capacity with intentional, inclusive efforts.
Who should attend: Artistic/Managing Directors, Marketing/Communications, Casting, Development, Box Office, Front of House, Volunteers…Everyone.
