Accessibility is about creating an inclusive environment that is welcoming to people with disabilities, but accessibility considerations can easily get lost if nobody owns them. We all share responsibility for complying with ADA requirements, and this session aims to lay out some examples of how to split these responsibilities, led by an attitude of access. Focusing on the dynamics between presenters, managers/agents, and artists, this seminar will cover topics such as working with artists and performers with disabilities, marketing artists and performers with disabilities, and overall improving access for patrons.
