2. Education and Job Training for Artists and Arts Administrators

Residencies with mental health support

not an intensive, but a place where classes are available to learn new skills and also focus is placed on having a supportive environment with pharmacy runs.

 

many of the residencies I find are too isolated to allow for trips to the pharmacy or are outside of my home state where my medicine is paid for.

 

just a couple things to consider.

1. Challenges and opportunities for Careers in the Arts

Transportation options

I'm concerned about the challenges for emerging artists who are unable to drive a car. After many years struggling with the challenges of getting where I need to go, I've had opportunities where "reasonable accommodations" were taken care of by others. Spending a day to get to and from one appointment or job, via paratransit, or bus, while others can do the same in 2 or 3 hours is frustrating. Please don't misunderstand ...more »

Reflection#2 Career Preparedness

Question: What ideas do you have to increase the career preparation and employment of people with disabilities in the arts?

Dance and Disability

What needs to be discussed in the dance community is how can we develope choreography that doesn't always have to be simple or highlighting a disability? I am currently training at Santa Monica College and while I am getting the best training with amazing dance instructors who aren't afraid to challenge me I find myself at a loss when I am not selected for challenging dance pieces. Now I understand that rejection is often ...more »

Professional Development Peer-led webinars with Video and Audio

Working artists with disabilities have developed varying marketing skills, methods of making art, and business management expertise. Creating and faciliating a series of webinars on 'Making, Marketing and Managing' will tap this energy and expertise for peer mentoring and exchanges. Being live sessions with audio and video with closed captions generates a sense of community and connection. A 'menu' of topics could ...more »

Encourage Funding for Projects w/ Limited Reach

Grants, more often than not, require that the "greatest number of people" be impacted. For Deaf theatre companies, this means including some sort of accessible component, meaning auditory or readable text for hearing audiences. This has the effect of discouraging deeper explorations into Deaf arts in the name of serving hearing audiences expectations and needs. We need more funding that isn't tied to hearing audience ...more »

4. Disability-Specific or Art-Specific Issues

Ticket to Work "Employment Team" for Artists

Social Security has a wonderful program called Ticket to Work. I have proposed the idea to Social Security that Artists, who receive SSDI (and who do not) who wish to return to work, should have "Employment Team" members for support. If we had the support we needed, we could also return to work. As far as I can see, there is still not an SSA employment team member for Artists. Please see link for details: https://www.choosework.net/about/meet-your-employment-team/index.html ...more »

Nonprofit..........

With certain requirements and under certain obligation, individuals with proven disability and/or low income, those should be allowed to claim a status of a nonprofit. This should be easily available, without government or lawyer fees. This way artists will not worry about losing their lifeline, medication and caregiver. Also, artists would be able to get the assistance from many corporations. For example, Godaddy ...more »
