Topic: Accessing Audiences: A Discussion on Inclusion and Disability
1 in 5 Americans has a disability. You probaby know someone with a disability. Would they be able to join you and fully experience one of Ohio's next great festivals? Could they attend your organization's next performance or navigate and enjoy your current exhibition? We all want to expand audiences and be inclusive. But until something is accessible, it's not inclusive. You are part of the creative industry and well-positioned to find inventive accommodations that welcome all. So let's talk about the challenges and find ways to ensure people with disabilities feel welcome in our spaces and programs.
VSA Ohio will start with some information on Disability 101 and best practices for accessible marketing. Then we'll have a conversation about barriers to participation, barriers to administration, and strategies for breaking through. The Columbus Children's Theatre will be there to share their experience building, growing, and entrenching accessibility into their organizational culture. Time and weather permitting, we will walk around the Thurber Center spaces and make note of physical barriers and discuss historic spaces. Bring your questions and ideas!
Parking is available at the meters on both sides of Jefferson Avenue and the parking lot on the southwest corner of Long Street and Jeffereson Ave. (no permit necessary).
