For example, what programs exist to facilitate virtual workspaces which make work environments more accessible?

Centering Disability Artistry

In too many art spaces, people are unaware that artistry that uses the political, cultural, and historical dimensions of disability is a profound and growing field.

Artistic Discipline-Specific Challenges & Progress

Opportunities available for Artists with disablities

Dialogue implies 2 way communication. I have an idea, how about getting this information out into the community? This site is too wordy and confusing too. Leaderboard points? WTF?

Disclosures & Representation: Best Practices

MARKETING & PROMOTING Performing Artists with Disabilities

Given the socialized marginalization, it is understandable that Professional Artist with Disabilities prefer not to highlight their unique challenges when promoting and marketing their shows. However, I don't think they realize that are missing a huge opportunity to reach an audience that is under-served and in need of inspiration. Based on the latest Arts and Ability research, only 7% of LIVE entertainment-goers ...more »

Students w/disabilities low participation in school Arts program

Observation, as it relates to students with disabilities and their "participation" in school arts programs. Their participation is low or non-existent because school arts programs are student selected and band/chorus/dance/theatre/etc teachers do not recruit for student participants.
