Introducing Disability Equity at A.R.T./New York

Wednesday, October 6, 2021
2:00pm - 3:30pm ET

Format: Online
Location: Zoom
Intended Audience: All A.R.T./New York members who are interested in advancing anti-ableism in our field.
Participation Level: Low - Presentation style workshop with opportunities for questions and discussion.

Introducing a brand new A.R.T./New York program... the Disability Equity Series! Developed with support from A.R.T./New York's Disability Advisory Council, this monthly series of workshops, roundtables, panels, and affinity spaces will take the A.R.T./New York community on a journey beyond just thinking about accessibility in terms of compliance or as a box to check. Participants will get a deep dive into concepts of anti-ableism as well as into practical ways to increase equity in the theatre.

The goal of this series is to shift our field away from focusing solely on accessibility to focusing on anti-ableism and equity for disabled people. We believe that this work involves changing systems & shifting culture, and not just adding on accommodations or one-and-done programs.

Join us for an overview of this new approach to our programming, and for an opportunity to ask questions and learn more about what disability equity means to A.R.T./New York.

This session will be facilitated by A.R.T./New York's Education & Access Coordinator, Kirsten Sweeney.
