Home Programs Arts Midwest Conference Accessibility


Arts Midwest believes the exchange of ideas and creative experiences inspires curiosity and understanding, and that inclusion of people of disabilities in our work is critical.

We provide the following accessibility accommodations at the conference. With two-weeks-notice, we can respond to other requests as needed. If you need or will use accommodations, please mention this in your conference registration form, or contact us at [email protected].

Accessibility On-site

While Conference guests can talk to any Arts Midwest staff about accessibility and accommodations, the Registration Desk will be the primary location to inquire about accommodations, pick up assisted listening devices, or get information. The desk has information about scooter and wheelchair rental, transportation, and all the accommodations listed here. We are also pleased to hear from you how we can improve our access services.

Open Captioning

Open captioning is provided during the plenary meals and presentations in the Main Ballroom, with text appearing on the large screens at the front of the room, on either side of the stage. This includes Thursday Opening Session + Keynote, Friday Lunch + Performance and Saturday Closing Session + Keynote.

Assisted Listening Devices

Assisted Listening Devices are available at the registration desk for use during professional development sessions. These devices have a microphone that needs to be handed to the presenters to keep at the front of the room.
