Arts Education / and Business Training

I am passionate about the need for students to have access to a multi-disciplinary arts education through school or other programs, Many artists ( myself included) discovered their love for their art and talent for their art at a young age.. Access to arts education allows future artists to not only discover a love for their art but also begin to develop their artistic talent. **************************************************** ...more »

University Guidance for Disabled Dancers

My greatest fear at this moment is transferring to a four year university as a dance major. I have search and searched for guidance of how to go about preparing for auditions. It's terrifying because realistically, it's a very slim chance that I get accepted into a dance program that will provide me with advance training in dance. Of course I can apply to universities that don't hold auditions but that's very limiting ...more »

accessibility to the arts for people / artists with disabilities

How do people become artists? Most often they were arts consumers first--audience members. But when the arts--the performing arts, visual art, media--are inaccessible, you have cut off an important avenue for people who have disabilities who could become professional artists. For instance--I work with audio description (AD), making all manner of art forms accessible to people who are blind. If a young person doesn't ...more »

Work related social skills

At the college level, I'd like to see smaller class sizes. Colleges are impacted and sometimes the course is too fast or too many people talking. Many young adults with disabilities have difficulty being assertive. I need to find more classes addressing work-related social skills. You know, engaging in "water cooler talk" instead of just talking about what interests them.

Separate is not Equal

As a wheelchair user and one of America's first professional wheelchair dancers, I can't stress enough the importance of equality in training. Every dance department in colleges and universities across America must come to the realization that they are non compliant if they do not provide equal training in the same environment for wheelchair dancers and stand up dancers. They can no longer use the excuse that they don't ...more »

Accessibility Resources for Non-Profits

I am a theatre artist living and working in Louisville, KY. Many people in the arts community here desire more diversity and inclusion. How can those in the disability community who are willing to help offer practical, logistical recommendations for small, non-profit arts organizations? How can we all, as a national arts community, pool our resources to help each other with things that have worked? From audition notices ...more »

College education and people with disabilities

I'm a student with a disability currently attending an arts college. While art has great potential as a career for those with disabilities, the present educational and gallery system makes it very hard for outliers like the disabled to succeed. Different schools may obviously vary tremendously in terms of work ethic and general culture, but in many art and design colleges a culture of overwork and subjective grading ...more »

change the way museums do business

Museums in this country still hold Native cultural artifacts in their collections. NAGPRA doesn't cover Canadian artifact stolen from the families of Native Americas covered by the Act. The Seattle Art Museum is a prime example. In his book Letters Home, Frank Boas describes the grave robbing he performed. The federal government needs to end this loop hole. In its place, replicate what the Makah Tribe of Washington State ...more »

Change perception of labor market value of skills in Arts

We need to change our perception of the labor market value of skills gained through study of Fine Arts and Humanities. With tuition costs so high, can we blame college students (or their parents) for choosing the more lucrative majors in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) disciplines? Can something be done concurrent with a Program for Disabled Artists to fix the problem with tuition debt and high ...more »
