Learn best practices to grow your understanding of accessibility.
If you work or volunteer in a museum, theater or cultural organization in Illinois – even if “access” isn’t in your job description, we invite you to join us. For true inclusion to be achieved, accessibility must be the responsibility of everyone, regardless of your department or the size or your organization’s budget.
Beginners in the field, as well as those with experience in cultural accessibility, are invited to attend programs, ask questions, share resources, and most importantly: support one another’s progress. Cultural accessibility is complex, and our work is never done.
A donation is suggested to cover our costs of the speaker and access services. Payment is optional.
Workshops range from beginner topics to more advanced conversations, from interdisciplinary conversations to deep dives with a specialized focus. Our goal remains to explore how our organizations can better include and welcome guests with disabilities. We share practical information to help you remove barriers within your institution.
